Putting as much as I could from lessons learned going to the Tortugas made the night much better.
- I broke into the kitty to buy an autopilot.
- I dressed warmer sooner.
- I crossed referenced the GPS, heading and charts.
- Jack lines! the boat gets very wet after dark
- Snack better
- Nap lightly and check ofter, other boats may be asleep at the wheel.
- Let someone know your course and plan.
All went well! A very successful night! I was nowhere as tired thanks to the Autopilot.
