Jessica has sailed past Western Australia and is now in South Australian waters. Took her a week to sail past WA, but WA is about three times the size of Texas.
Abby is still having autopilot woes
. I wondered why she didn't have a wind-powered auto-pilot like Jessica, she (Abby), posted that apparently her boat is not suitable for wind-powered autos. Still, her trouble-shooting skills are exceptional, for a man, woman or child.
Quote from a comment:
"Years ago I installed a Morse hydraulic steering in a boat for a long cruise. I inquired about what types of fluids would work in an emergency. I was told, to my amazement, that in an emergency salt water could be used.
So long as Abby doesn't run out of salt water she should be OK.
