CharlieCobra Simon, I would imagine that the biggest enemy would be boredom out there. That and trying to keep an interesting diet. Was there anything that took you by surprise about the boat or the passage?

Keep 'em comin'!

Charles, I had to deal with the doldrums twice north of 00,00.00 I believe at the point I crossed it, was at its thinnest at about 80 miles; so about 10hrs at 6 knots the current runs at about 1.5 knots.
