January 31st Weather Update
Yesterday was a breezy day but we still had a good ride.  Winds were from the east at about 15-17 kts. The waves were 2-3 ft.  We were able to run east and west and this kept the waves directly on our bow or our stern.  A good ride with very little motion.
 
Today the winds have died down and are from the east at about 10kts.  Waves will be 2-3 ft and subsiding into the afternoon.
 
Ship Fact:  The vessel is equipped with "fixed Stabilizers" to reduce or (dampen) the ships "rolling motion.  These are big "wings" that are fixed to the hull at about a 90 degree angle and are about 7 feet wide and run on both sides of the ship from near the bow to near the stern.
