Stormy Weather

Its not all smooth sailing on the Chesapeake, in fact quite the opposite for the past few days.  We have headed into and passed through some of the heaviest storms and lightning shows I have ever seen.  At one point we couldn't see more than 100m in front of the boat.  A lightning bolt struck the water very, very close to us and almost blew our eardrums out, wicked!  To add to the adventure one of the propeller shafts snapped and has left us limping on with one engine.  Should still be able to make it, we hope?
