(no subject)

August 7, 2008--The past two days have been very, very nice. We have had no squalls, the seas have calmed down, and the wind has been between 10 and 18 knots so the ride is very comfortable now. Steve finally got into the sleep routine. He always has trouble for the first 3 days of any passage. He has to get to the point that he is so tired, he can't stay awake. I, on the other hand, can sleep anywhere at any time.

Yesterday we charged the batteries with the generator since our alternator was out again. We will be happy to pick up our new alternator in Samoa. We will need full batteries to run the radar when we are approaching land. There are sure to be fishing boats or cargo ships close by. We also made as much water as we could since the harbor water is not clean enough to make water while we are there.
