Also on Monday I collected my Marine Track tracking device, that will enable visitors to my website to follow my sedate progress across the Pacific.
On the Atlantic I used a similar device – an Argos tracking beacon – but the Marine Track unit is smaller, lighter, and doesn’t have to live outside on the deck. It is equally happy inside a cabin, out of my way.
I’m planning to test this out shortly, by fitting it to my boat before I set out with boat in tow to speaking engagements in Hood River and Bend, Oregon, and Colorado. With a bit of luck, the signal will be beamed back to England plotting my progress around the US.
