Day 18

108 miles for 2038 at 04 37N 130 24W

More rain squalls and low wind between them. About 2 we finally gave up and started the motor. We motored all afternoon and through the night. Sails up again at end of day 18 (8:00).

No fish.

I thought we had another problem with the GPS. It did not agree with the compass by about 150 degrees. We went through all the electrical and found a 1/2 volt difference in the batteries and the instrument bus, but that was not the problem. When we finally started the engine and moved faster than 1.2 knot, the GPS corrected right around and worked fine. We just weren't moving fast enough for it to figure out which way we were going.

Otherwise a quiet day.
