  4. Walkabout's position when located by USGC

    Best guess N24°28 W151°57, much farther south and east than I guessed from initial reports.

    The map image appears to show the path of the Coast Guard aircraft until intercepting the Walkabout on...
  5. Walkabout

    Here is a detailed story about the rescue of Walkabout. They were dismasted by the rescue ship and went under the stern once. Ugh. "The boat got drawn under the counter and disappeared. After a few...
  6. Sea Surface Temperature plots for Aug 2012 and Aug 2014

    Here are the SST plots for the SHTP return time-frame (August 10th-ish), for 2012 and 2014. Yes, it was over the top hot this year. Notice the 26.65C (80F) contour line. In 2012 it was way south of...

    Hurricane Pollo’s predicted path, according to NOAA, is to the immediate west of Cabo . . . exactly where NOAA’s predicted path was for Odile, until the day it hit Cabo.
  8. Hurricane ODILE makes landfall at Cabo

    Interesting year. The forecasts generally showed the track to the west of Cabo. The storm hit as a Cat 3. It could actually hit Phoenix as a tropical depression. This mornings wind history plot...

    Getting north of Lat 25 had no meaning this year. It was equally warm at 30 north. Rather more important to get east. The sea surface temperatures must have been similar in 1992 when Iniki charged...

    Yellow brick says the General is about 70nm off of Santa Barbara. Looks like he may be dropping by Santa Barbara or the Channel islands.

    Trying to cover too much material for one. Translated; the water temperature due north of Kauai at latitude 30N is around 82F. The water due east of Puerta Vallarta is 87F. It is el Nino time and...

    "Conclusion: 2014/15 El Niño is likely to rival 1997/98 and 1982/83 events, which were the largest in the last 140 years or so."

    Given the unprecedented amount of hot water north of latitude 25, we seem to have a "neo-niño" year. Prepare for unprecedented weather. Maybe "The Great San Diego Hurricane"?

    Scaramouche is off shore based AIS. Does anyone know her position?

    BTW Crabby, this statement was intended to be a heart felt compliment to Alan and the others. I am most impressed by the people who do this race competently in the smallest and lowest budget boats. I...

    I haven't found a clear statement about the EPIRB yet. They are apparently using the Delorme to track the abandoned boat.

    That homemade looking covered "patio" on the stern was obviously the last...

    Except for Kauai

    "Wind data in particular supports the USGS assertion that hurricane damage has been low on all islands except for Kauai."

    Apparently Kauai is too far from the hurricane shield...
  22. Is Lightspeed still having trouble steering?

    Looks like Lightspeed may still be having problems with the ball of twine on his prop and rudder. He is waay north.

    I hadn't noticed this before. Warriors Wish had a huge steel spreader "flange" to distribute force to the glass hull. That kept things watertight when the keel fatigued off.
