I tried attaching a few photos for your enjoyment but have an issue with a missing security token. The photo files are too large to send and exceed the Sailnet limitation even when I try to reduce their resolution. If any are interested drop a note here with an email address and I will send them off.

She was at position (N36 05.977 W63 40.122) on June 10 at 1358 hours (UTC -4) if anyone is willing to calculate her new drift position and go look for her.

Good luck
Full - send them to >smackdaddy at bfsshop dt com< and I'll get them posted.
