No wind again today, so slow progress.

Tom has had his first catch of the trip, a yellow fin tuna, about ½ meter long, so it is tuna for dinner tonight. Well Tuna for Tom, Joe, and Allison, Richard and I are on sausages. We got the fish into a bucket, then tried to get the vodka into its gills to anesthetise it, it was a very happy fish before it had its head chopped off. Well I say we i watch and was the official photographer.

Skipper Splodge and Mack have come on deck for the first time, and are now riding in the cup holders in front of the wheel, chatting to Randy the Rat, Richard naturally wants to cast all 3 rodents adrift in the same lifeboat, (Richard will probably forget the lifeboat).
