Nay, my first exposure to it was a hell of a lot of "ribbing," as you say–which is why I am posting here and sticking around You could say that my bringing up the fact that SimonV doesn't have ANY paper charts onboard, or that he doesn't scan the horizon religiously but is relying on radar almost entirely (which thus far is working quite well) is my "ribbing" him. But if one were to take that too seriously, they might find my last statement contradictory, that being that the ocean is large place with room enough for all types. Alas, contradiction is the nature I think in all things... I digress.

I spoke with GregD and Melissa3 yesterday, and they informed me that he, at their bequest, does in fact some charts aboard. So I take that bit back.

gdavids is on a distinguished road
This evening's radio chat logged him at 19º 51'N 129º 16'W. The big news today is he caught his first fish - perhaps a blue fin tuna. The first meal out of him was delish, and there is enough left over for a few more. He said the cockpit looked like a crime scene when he was done with the filleting job.

He did eat the first fillet from that fish raw right? There just is no other way.

By that position I'm estimating Simon- is around 1320 miles out of SF. (Anyone else have something different?)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

T34C-

I'm not say how far he has sailed. but what roughly what distance he is from SFO. He did go a bit further west initially and had to south to get back on track... so his log is going to show more than his distance from SFO.
