Rigged a second stbd lower emergency shroud this am. Getting line over spreader involved a bucket, 10 lbs of sugar, a boathook, and 3 hours. With Reboot rocking 30* side to side this avoided climbing the mast. You had to be there. Not! We just encountered “Overseas Express”. She is a World ARC boat also headed for Hiva-Oa. We expect to see the rest of the ARC there. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat.
