Tested the harness this morning by swimming off the back whilst doing three knots and got pat to drag me round to knock on ljs's cabin window. LJS is warning me that some crew may be getting overworked - he had to test our hammock in the cockpit for thre hours yesterday whilst listening to Albatross and drinking Mohitos, so fair enough.
Match fishing in progress this morning with para satisfied at his first catch and Pwc working harder to even things up. Zefender's "mother watch" system 3hrs on 6hrs off with one day in each four as cook/botlewasher and no night watch is liked by all. My inability to hold any food/liquids after hull scraping lasted two days but vanished with Itinerol B6. - tcm
