Dany II...today's conditions are still much the same with 20knts. from the WSW, & D2 is flying along @ 7-8knts., with 376 mi. to the Maldives...not much activity out here, just a lot of flying fish & us...the movement has become less eratic & the cockpit is dry most of the time now...we still are reluctant to put the cockpit cushions out tho!...rain showers are starting to become more frequent & it's good to get some of the salt washed off...D2 is going to need a serious clean up when we finally reach Langkawi...it's been great not having to run the engine on this leg..we do have to run the generator tho, just to keep the autopilot running, which is a small price to pay for our "silent" crew member...cheers! D2 & crew
