|Nice new AIS radio - and it works!!!|
Glen tested it the other night when "The World," was anchored near us at our spot in Cane Garden Bay. "The World" is a cruise ship owned by the passengers. So I guess the "strata" decides where and when they will cruise. I expect that the cabins (there are 167 of them) cost quite a bit more than chump change.
Apparently pressing the button causes all kinds of alarms to go off on the bridge so the officer in charge wasn't all that much fun to talk to. He chuckled a little when Glen told him that we just installed the radio. He said, "Well, it works!"
As you can see, Friday night the winds are 19 and 20 but die down a bit early Saturday. The important thing is that the direction is almost north-east. We are going slightly south of east so we might be able to pull off a close reach.
The waves are 2.4m (about 8 feet) and coming from side - not bashing straight into the boat, slowing it down to 2 knots each time we crest. Also, the wave period is 8 seconds so the boat can go up and down a wave rather than crashing into them and burying the nose like we do when the waves are closer together.

So that's the plan.
Until then, we snooze, do small jobs, swim, drink and wander around ashore.
