Sure it is! More reason for not allowing spying
I got lost regarding Boatie's crew...
Is it Boatie + 2 female crew or is it Boatie + 1 male crew + 2 female crew???

Ahem ... Ahem ... Ahem: I believe a certain crustaceano, congrejo azul, suggested that Phil had met some "tourists seeing the sights", on the corner.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

just had a chat with phil,and it was as we had thought a cascade of issues,and light winds,coupled with a total failure of the charging system and generator.
still has 2 half tanks of fuel,but not enough juice in the batteries to start the engines.
but i will let phil disseminate that.

they have slowed down a bit now with head winds so will be in in about an hour and a half,looking forward to steak and chips at cafe sport it it is still open.

only one lady crew onboard,jp must have been seeing double.

funny thing is phil had pre programmed his spot to text my number with a "all gone to ****,help" and "we are okay" message before they left florida,unbeknowest by me!

he rekoned that he would have been off horta by the morning,and in cell phone range to call for a tow in when needed,but as things turned out the timing was out of my hands by then.

he also reported that the water tanks had become contaminated,and were running out of botteled water,but were able to stop a ship who gave them some more,and bread a ciggies!

as they say **** happenes!,at least they are in safe,and can get an early monday morning start on rectifing the issues
