Katie Lee Update

Hi all,

17°30.85'N 104°02.63'W 5.8kts @ 265T

First day and still motoring. A little breeze on the nose, but can't seem to sail less than 45 to 50 degrees off. We tried to sail for 1 1/2 hours, but no use. We had planned to motor about 2 days to start, so we are still on schedule.

We have caught 2 skip jack tuna and thrown them both back. Dolphins have played in the bow wave several times. We just now discovered that something large hit my fishing pole. It broke the plastic pole holder off and the pole was snagged on the life-ring. When we pulled it in, there was no fish! darn.

The fore deck leaked a little water on Donnie. We are trying to chalk it some more today. We chalked around the deck-lights before we left, but that doesn't seem to be where the leak was.

More later,
Larry, Trinda and Donnie
