I didn’t know Fenwick Light had a poop deck until today. Usually a poop deck is described as the deck behind the wheel on a vessel, typically found on a galleon ship. On Fenwick Light, our poop deck is found on the port side below the vent that leads from the toilet. We literally have poop on our deck. Turns out a valve was installed too low and now sprays little bit of poop out of the vent every time we flush.
In other news, we are over 500 nm offshore and after a long sleepless night on a port tack, are now heading SW on a much more comfortable starboard tack. We seem to be in a bit of a shipping lane, perhaps coming out of LA and have been dodging ships all day. They have made us feel a little less lonely today in this big ocean. 1580 nm left until Hawaii!
