Please fasten your restraining devices

I'm pretty sure that this is where I get my power of understatement...

From the Captain:

I'm supposed to be in the doldrums motoring but I have "weather" which is pushing me through though I just had to discover how to furl in the pitch black in 20+ k.  I can, I did.  Got wet in the warm rain.  It always happens when I'm on the radio watch, and mostly I let the boat ride it through, but tonight it was getting a bit wild.  Hit 9+k in the glance at the chart plotter I gave it.  Probably higher but I was busy.

Take care - equator the day after tomorrow, port Friday if all goes well.
