Can this thread hold together for that long? . . .

Bearing in mind his initial serpiginous track I make his distance travelled to be near 1850NM - an average of approx 170NM per day, but I've been wrong before! Sadly the initial two pages of track points appear to have vannished, but recall he did travel NNE, then NE towards Bermuda, then E tracking south of Bermuda, then he did the SSE for a day or two, before maintianing the general track he is on for the last 4+ days. The last three days are averaging in the high 170's I think.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Serpiginous - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary ?

Possibly serpentine?

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Perhaps so!
I was referring to the convouted, wavy, serpant like path. Serpentine will do.
Thanks.

Boaty is more serendipitous by nature, I would say, than serpentine.

Well, I don't want to get off on a rant here. Allow me to offer flowers to all the great CF females , as most of you are, from the lowlife louts among the men. Fie on them!

Can't say as I seek out women with grease under their fingernails but I do favor competent gals who don't gussie up, wear silly shoes, smoke, or insist on hot water to shave their legs, and that's what we get on CF. Without the margin ID/avatars it would be tough to tell the guys from the gals.

Kinda like Olympic figure skaters.
Speak for yourself my friend and as for the gals, I kinda like those who do gussie up and wear silly shoes .

OK, I don't really know what "gussie up" means but I'm sure I would like it anyway...

And I'm also sure Boatie would like 'em too

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Ah Ha!
His Spot has just sent a current fix.

That's near enough to 700Nm in 4 days = 175NM/D

It is perhaps serendipitous that his track now neither serpiginous nor serpentine.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

looking at todays weather ,assuming phil has weather info as well.

i predict that he will turn more east from his current ENE track,and stay on roughly 30N for the next 4-5 days dodging the windier weather to the north.

ps gussied up in old parlance means "corset and suspenders i belive!"

Re: Atlantic Delivery

The guess of 140 nm/day was pretty easy to pick - motorsailing at 6 knots will give you that.

Unless you’re towing a fuel barge big enough to make 3K + miles
