Day 17 Promotion

This is the ship's brain. It tells us where we've been and the hazards that lie before us. The Captain spends many hours with his friend. I just observe the interaction of these neural resources.

As we set to sea today a high NW wind warning for Superior was posted. Our course took us over hundreds of wrecks of less fortunate sailors. The Captain executed a perfect gibe off Whitefish Point, leaving the towering seas and the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald in our wake.

In celebration of not being another wreck on Gitche Gumee's most dangerous shore... The crew hereby declares Captain Kip an Admiral.
