Overall the overnight trip was not an enjoyable experience. As the sunset of that day faded and I slowly motored on, I experienced a profound sadness and strong desire to not be there (some tears even!). I was too tired from not sleeping well the previous night, which I'm sure amplified those emotions.
I had probably 15-20 naps of 15-20 minutes each through the night. My alarm would go off, I would throw on insulated pants, a jacket, and a lifejacket, go upstairs, attach the tether, and then spend a minute or two examining the surroundings and the chartplotter display. Then back below for another 20 minutes of rest. At the 5.5 knot pace I would progress almost 2 miles between each of these appearances. Louise stayed below the whole night. There were basically no waves which was nice.
