It´s what we will have to call a slow, steady, diesel start. Only four out of the last 25 hours without the sound of the engine doing 2000 to 2200 RPMs. It´s also as forecasted. We are heading for 5S, 94W where apparently there should be steady trades. Beautiful weather, beautiful night (without any moon).
All is well.

I am the Captain of this ship, and I have my Wife´s permission to say so!
