whether, by Bob

It is 3:00 am 7/21/08, water temperature 40.4°F, outside air temperature 43°, inside air temperature 55°. Wind is 8 knots from the west. The current is strong from the north. We are at 52°45'N 170°23'W, between Yunaska and Herbert islands.

We are crabbed 30 degrees into the current moving east northeast. In other words, the boat is pointing to 44° and we are traveling at an angle of 74°. The boat is moving at 6.8 knots through the water and a little over 6 knots over the ground. The current was going the opposite direction an hour and a half ago.There is no moon visible. No stars. No sun. Just occasional alien spacecraft.
