Thanks, everybody - glad to hear that it's interesting to you as observers. I think everyone should do a trip like this at some point. It really teaches you respect for the the marine environment, both its beauty and its potential for danger (think: Spares, backup systems, contingency plans and alternative destinations).
Biggest screw-up of the trip: Didn't use the camera, although we did get a small amount of video.
It looks like the Cape May trip next weekend is probably off, but there's a group that seems to be interested in Baltimore the weekend of the 21/22. (Shorter run for me, too....)
