Sorry, my simple mind just thought that the GPS markers were updated at equal time intervals, so greater distance between them would represent greater distance traveled in same time, thus higher speed. I was wrong LOL.

Was doing same. They update at different times.
I am calculating based on latitude/longitudes Vs times.

I hope all is well with them, could be any number of things but progress towards land is a good sign. Been following this thread all day, and looks like it'll be all night now too...

My guess is they broke a drive @ 10:24 and headed for home. They've spent the last 2 1/2 hrs @ approx. 20 mph (according to my math) which sure sounds like one motor to me.
Been doing GPS/math the last 2 1/2 hrs and going to bed now.
I'll get up to see what tiki bar they tied off of in Stlantic City in the morning

i have not done the math but if they are only going that fast then i would imagine probably the week link would have been the drive....

since we are all sitting here with nothing to do how about a few videos to watch?

speaking of one drive. jim broke one on his cigarette 35 cafe a few months ago and when the drive broke he stayed on plane and ran in at 45 mph on one engine from down in the keys all the way to tnt.... i would have bet money that it would not have ran that fast on one but here is the video..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aS7O80iH_2w

and here is a video of us running back from bimini during the bimini challenge on one engine from the lower breaking.

hopefully they are having as much fun as we were even if they didnt make it... at least they tried... they probably have the stereo cranked up talking about when they are going to try it again....
