Latest GPS track just came up, looks like they nailed it in that NW direction. Hope everything is OK

Yea, looks like they are hauling ass in, if they aborted then they have plenty of fuel why dog it back in, pull up and run it in.

I think they'll make land in OC Maryland, win direction and stream at their back, makes sense to me?

At least they are under way again. Sucked when it wouldn't refresh for a while.

just in case we see them stop or slow 0-50 -80? miles from shore. Is anyone in the direction they are comming back in at that has a reliable boat that would be willing to head out toward the direction they are comming in at and check on them and follow them back in to make sure they dont have a fuel (amount) problem or something? im sure we can come up with some money for fuel.
