Day 4

We made 132 miles for 476 total at 15 36N and 109 24W

We were having trouble keeping the windvane from tripping up out of the water. I was up every 30 minutes from the end of my watch at 11PM last night till 5 AM when the wind died. Every time we got to 7 kts, it tripped. Finally I pulled in the jib and slowed down so I could sleep during Donnie's watch.

I decided it needed stronger bungees holding it. After about 2 hours of hand steering this morning, I got them put on.

Still no fish. We made hamburgers on the grill. The wind was blowing enough that they seemed like they would never cook.
