re: clear night and stars - on passage at night I usually spend an inordinate amount of time puzzling over whether that bright light that I see is really a star on the horizon, a plane on the horizon, a stern light on a boat or a (argh) steaming light on a boat heading at me without port/starboard running lights.

During the daylight, passage time is touch up varnish, metal polish, checking for chafe, repacking lockers and doing the general puttering around that I love to do while Joan reads after finishing the crossword puzzle of the day. I also tend to think about food alot - unless it's crap, on the nose weather and then I think about sun and following winds (so, I guess I dream on passages!)
