Another update on Bernard:
Ben called just to confirm he’s still in the middle of nowhere. 70-knot winds last night had them dragging anchor all over the place, and no one got any sleep, trying to keep the boat from grounding. Today winds are calmer, but the Gulf is still very rough, and it’ll be a couple more days till they can head in. Running out of gas is a concern, so engines are all shut down, no lights or power. They ran out of sandwich meat today, and there’s only 1/8th of a jar of peanut butter left, so after that they’re down to oatmeal and fish. Fortunately, there’s a lot of fish out there, so they shouldn’t have to resort to cannibalism.
