Dorado and swimming! 18:10.47N 33:43.50W

Boys swimming on a quiet day.
Bringing in the great catch caught on a silver and pink plug
Manhandled on board by Led. Almost lost it at the last moment as the treble broke from the lure at the moment the fish was clear of the water
10lb Dorado (mahi-mahi) safely landed and dispatched with alcohol in the gills, a great tip from some magazine or other.
Sliced and diced and ready for the oven. One cut was kept back for sashimi at sunset with a cooling beer.
Wind light today, so we've motorsailed almost all day which has eaten into the fuel supplies, we're not halfway yet, and are hoping for some decent wind in the next couple of days to speed us along. The trades seem fickle this year, and have not properly established.
