|We made it through Pollack Rip and
Nantucket Sound in the wee hours this
morning. Winds were light, Force 3 at the
time, and visibility good for following the buoys
in. We left the mains'l up until 3 am when
we struck it at the change of the watch.
Since yesterday evening the forecast for
the northeast region has deteriorated, and we are
starting to feel the punch of it here in Buzzards
Bay. We had a quick transit this
morning down Vineyard Sound with just the Fore,
Jumbo, and Jib and we are motorsailing now to do
a possible otter trawl on the north side of the
bay. Weather may prove to be prohibitive.
Our plan is to anchor in the
protection of the Sconticut Neck tonight and head
to the dock by late tomorrow morning.
I woke to the ringing of
the breakfast bell I was exhausted from the
night before. I looked out of my bunk and
said "oh what a mess" and I
finally was ready to be on deck. Didn't
realize I was late,
My bad, my
mistake. It started to rain, My
hair's a poofin, "oh what a pain" We
had leftovers for lunch, It's
time to munch. Having to do the otter
trawl. All the watches was havin' a ball. After
everything well and done, everyone
said it was a lot of fun. Dinner
smells good, Can't wait to eat it, like I should. C
