Noon Position: 18 27' S, 124 05' W, SOG 6.5, COG 015, Day's Run 105nm,
Week's Run 592. Yesterday I used 4.5 rolls of toilet paper. That's an
entire convenient, septic-safe 4-pack plus a bit extra. It was not, as
you may surmise, as a result of eating some poorly cured dried wahoo, or
even eating moldy cheese or a bad bit of sausage. It was, in fact, a
sacrifice in yet another massive push against the mold. As of yesterday
afternoon, everything from the companionway forward (including the
v-berth, fetid mass of wet sails that it is) has been de-molded and
dried. I only have 2 rolls of paper towel left, but approximately
2,000,000,32 rolls of toilet paper, so a substitution was made. I have
high hopes that I may get until next week before it starts appearing again.


  1. I knew there was a reason you needed so much of it when we were buying supplies! :)

  2. Did you know you are just over 300 nm west of your outbound route? Pretty great!
