Fish log

Kathy here.

Well here we are somewhere in the South Pacific on passage. It officially been 2 full days with about 5 more to go. We work the shifts such that during daylight from 6 am to 6 pm we each do a 4 hour watch and then at night we change that to 3 hour watches. It seems to work well and every other day we get the opposite watch so it evens everything out.

Now is the time when full boredom kicks in. During this boredom I think of extremely intellectual challenging things to do, such as, see how slowly I can eat a grapefruit. Another task I decided to tackle is a fish log. Dave and I talked about keeping a fish log so we can brag about it later, but keep forgetting. So we did some brainstorming and came up with what we think a pretty accurate list of what we've caught this past season. I hope the formatting transmits ok.
