The last Facebook posting by the Bounty on the ships fan page was at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Looks to be sailing thru the tail end of the rain storms.
Last reported coordinates from the ship were at N 34 degrees 22' W 074 degrees 15', speed 10.3 knots.

The last communication with another ship was from Captain Walbridge sent to the Miss Tracie, and commenting that the ships might pass one another late Sunday night:

I think we are going to be into this for several days, the weather looks like even
after the eye goes by it will linger for a couple of days.

We are just going to keep trying to go fast and squeeze by the storm and land as
fast as we can. I am thinking that we will pass each other sometime Sunday night or Monday morning.

All else is well,
