A big Thank You to our followers and for those who are wondering what happened to our cruising plans, we’re still in Coos Bay waiting for the weather opportunity. The boat is ready and we’re checking the forecast every 12 hours.
To follow us down the coastine and across the Pacific, there is an icon off to the right side of the screen on the blog with a little green lizard, (the color doesn’t represent our state of well being mind you), it should be a bright yellow for the sunshine, anyway it is titled:
“Where is Konami” Yotreps position report, this is a GPS position report that we send in to update our position while underway. A Google earth will show a red balloon indicating Konami’s position. We will update our position with weather and sea state in the comment section. If you don’t see our position on the map don’t be too concerned, it may take a few hours for the web people to update the reports. It’s all done by volunteers and the developers of the website.
The Marinetraffic.com or Vesselfinder.com websites will track us as long as there is wifi station for these two websites going down the coast, spotty in some areas.
We are at the Charleston dock with two other sailboats waiting, waiting. The rain is coming in this afternoon and it’s very chilly. Even the dockside crabbers aren’t staying long. The seas are confused, a little more so than us, the winds are suppose to pick up around Cape Blanco this afternoon as a front rolls in from the southwest. From the weather forecast we’re thinking Thursday afternoon or Friday. We need a good 2 – 3 day window to get around Cape Mendocino and into San Francisco.
The boat is clean, very secure and everything is stowed better than when we came down the coast.
A sailboat came in this morning out of Port Townsend, WA and the two fellows were staggering around on the dock trying to get their balance back, they came down with the strong northerly winds nonstop, woot for them, tough guys. I don’t particularly care to look the way they did with baggy eyes, rumpled clothes that were slept in for 5 days and smelling like there wasn’t a shower on the boat… but reality being what it is, we may well look like they did.
So please, get out there and do some Sun Salutation poses for us, wish us lots of patience while we wait. The Waiting Game.
