Day 2 Galapagos to Marquesas Islands 5/1/13
Ok, so I read my fishing guide book again and purchased varies fishing gear from many different stores on Galapagos Island. I had to buy some lures in one store, then walk across town to buy more fishing line in another, and then put together bits of old fishing gear to make new lures. I did purchase one manufactured Lure and it was the only one that got some action. I didn’t see the hit but a fish of some kind put a big gash in the side of my new lure and I have nothing to show for it “DAM IT!” Anyway I have engineered 3 handlines and my ocean master fish rode/reel set up so I can have 4 lures trolling behind Dragonsbane at once. It should be pretty interesting if I hook anything big with all that gear in the water but I don’t care. I want a really big TUNA!
The rest of the day was spent trying to harness the wind which was only around 4 knots all day. We did get a few small squalls with buckets of fresh rain which was nice. I took a rain shower and as soon as I had enough shampoo in my hair it stopped raining. But it rained enough to get my fishing guide book water logged again. We are slowly getting back into our routine and only have 2,812 nautical miles to go!

Love Fish, just don’t try and catch them! They are smart!
We will be watching your progress, degree by degree! You always seem to be inventing gadgets and gizmos. I am confident that you will outsmart that tuna sooner or later!! Love you lots, Mom.
