Back in the South Pacific

We crossed the equator last night at 00:19 Central South Pacific Boat Time. We crossed at latitude 147-35.44W.

Dave was off watch asleep. I woke him up a few minutes ahead of time, so we could do the proper ceremonies to Neptune.

We also took this momentous opportunity to cast a few ashes of a good friend of Dave's, as we crossed the equator. Henry "Mike" Mikelait, whom our windvane is named after, is finishing his final lap around the world aboard Soggy Paws. We have instructions from his daughters to leave a little of Mike in his favorite places around the world as we go.

Welcome to the South Pacific again, Mike.
