Well it’s time for everyone to learn a bit about latitude and longitude, including myself. Once we are away from Internet, I will not have the luxury of wordiness nor will I be able to send photos. What I hope to send, at the least, are our coordinates. The coordinates in the title are our current position at the Subic Bay Yacht Club. If you go to google map and type those coordinates into the bar at the top and hit search, you should be taken to our exact spot in the world. If you tell Google to do satellite view, you will see the docks at the Subic Bay Yacht Club.
As for our missing part, it arrives today by coconut express. A local customs man helped us get the part out of Manila customs and we have just received word that the package is on the way to Subic. We plan to pick up the package in a couple of hours, Blaine will climb the mast and install, and we will be bound for Puerto Galera. Our plan is to travel through the night and arrive at Puerto Galera tomorrow morning. I have attached a photo of today’s Manila headline, based on our experience trying to send a simple package, “difficult” is an extreme understatement.
Here’s hoping for our imminent departure.
