Day 17

Well the wind and waves will not give up, even to give us a last couple of days of nice weather. A boat which just arrived today in the Marqueses had so little wind that they motored for about 30 hours to the final harbor. We are only 150 miles away but have 20-25 knots of wind and big seas... hmm... tough passage.

All is well and we are looking forward to arriving, looks like about midnight or so on Sunday. We are not sure we can make harbor at night so will may end up waiting and floating outside until day light on Monday to anchor.
