Oh, how I wish we had been more humble. By 1:00 AM, the winds had increased to -20 kts and the seas started building. By 2:30 am, we had just about found all the loose items on the boat that bounced, clanged, and crashed with each violent rise and fall of the bow.
At dawn this morning, there are no signs that we’ll see any improvement today and we may be beating in to this mess through most of Friday. The weather reports aren’t very encouraging, but Puerto Rico grows closer with each pound of the bow.
