We had to turn on the radar and indeed saw a small fishing boat right on our line. We hit something in the water last night. No worries, but we were concerned it might have line on it. We put the engines in neutral and just sat for a few minutes. Back up and then proceeded on. We\’ve bumped two big strands of cold water \”bull kelp\” (sea weed). Again, just a bump, no worries. Yesterday afternoon we had do dodge the cray fish pots off Dassen Island (half way to Saldana Bay from Cape Town). Seas calm, gray gray day. It\’s cold (the water is the reason – The COLD Benguela Current). Motoring in flat seas with a very slight 5-8 knot headwind. 300 Miles to Luderitz KIT, Scott and \”on watch\” Nik!
