To Singapore:

Today everything is the same, wind at 21, seas at 6' - squalls blowing through. Boat is really riding nice right now, just up and down, really smooth. Should be a lot of fishing boats out tonight as we are seeing many already. Most of these guys were altering course and coming over for a look today. They would head towards us and then make a pass and stare. Some guys would wave, most just look and then go back to work. They must think we are kind of odd looking, no long deck for working, cooking and sleeping, no carvings, no bright colors, no place to hang your tires - it doesn't even roll like a real boat. American boats...you can have 'em.
