Easy Rider - Easy Rider Ship Surgeon's log day 2-3.

Yesterday wasn't one of the most memorable days we've had on the Atlantic.. Day started out with the fishing/trawlingline-stuck-in-rudder incident but after that, winds died and the autopilot has now done the job for 24 hours without us having to even touch the helm. It's nice but it's boring! Weather wasn't helping us much either.. An annoying drizzle forced us to stay inside for much of the day - not very good for my now peaking tan. Takes hard work to keep such a thing going, and a few days without sun can be a catastrophe! Everybody had a good nights sleep, and this morning we woke up to a racing fishing rod. Finally after having dragged the lure about another 1000 miles Kristian caught a decent sized Abercor tuna, our guess is round 6-8 kg. So guess what we're having for dinner the next couple of days!? We're now averaging about 5,5knots again heading in the right direction, so except for the lack of a little North Atlantic gale action we really can't complain.
Soy's note: which means that the slow cooked duck that I was preparing for tonight
, will be dinner for tomorrow! Hard knocks!
Also did watch a terrific documentary 'Searching for Sugerman'.....catch it if you get a chance - fantastic yarn and strangely it's a true story!
