Day 45: APT are now 140 miles to the finish line and remain flat out to maintain the 21 mile gap with Row 2 Recovery as a comfort zone.
New problems in the final days are broken rowing seats and falling asleep at the oars if not concentrating. The biggest issue is that the hatch door has broken when trying to shut and seal off the cabin properly. This makes it more likely for water to get in if seas are choppy and the unthinkable for Tiny Dancer in the event of capsize. Here is to Monday coming quickly, and it will come as no surprise that they are aiming for Happy Hour as their ETA.
