Well the first Midwatch went well. The 1st mate made it all the way thru the watch; started 'resting' at 11ish and had to wake her up when we docked at 0230am. Very calm evening on the water and no excitement other than racing the Odyssey gig-they had 2 rowers and I had the 9.9hp Mercury. Power won. There was one GoFast that came thru Northwest Passage Village; our patrol route; with a pretty definative statement. The 1stMate asked for a 'demo' but all six guys declined, one may have choked on his adult beverage when asked. The secondary-backup-she didn't know this was the plan 1st mate arrived from Helena MT shortly after 11pm and proceeded to 'her berth' to rest up.
Today we have a sailing secort with the Lynx at 1430; keep the boaters away from the ship; the Airshow will be going on during that and then 2nd Midwatch tonite
