Ship's log: It's been heavy going waiting for the SE to fill in; it's not here yet! At least the distance to go log has finally started to go down in the number of miles to go, not up! Sharp eyed readers of this blog will have noticed that Infini has passed into the eastern hemisphere, crossing the Date Line in the early morning hours yesterday. Of possible import is that we discovered that one of the diesel tank sending units had misread on the guage; it had probably been stuck when it read full...the tank is actually about empty, so we're down about 75G that we usually would have topped off. Hmmm...All's well aboard.
Update: the SE winds have filled in, and we're barreling along in 20-25 knots of wind on a heading of about 235T. Now all we have to do is wait for the wind and seas to calm down a bit....
