Yes, an amazing trip and the analytics possible seemed to make it even more fun for the guys. I'm wondering why the container ship El Fara, recently sunk by the hurricane was not using such simple technology to send it's position by satellite to owners and the Coast Guard. The ship did have a "black box" now 15,000 feet below the surface and an automatic position transmitter aboard but that radio signal can only can be received by radio receivers located within 35 miles or so. (See marinetraffic.com to see how ships can be tracked and shown online).

I can't imagine being in the open water like that, especially with 34 hours. Glad that bow wake was just a bump along the way and not more.

The paddle took 34 continuous hours of paddling, non-stop.

Just after dark, and just as we were getting into the gulfstream, the kayakers were seeking a bit of shelter from the wind & waves by paddling on the leeward side of the support boat, and one of them got a bit too close to the bow-wake (and the heaving bow of the support boat), and capsized. Thankfully nobody was hurt!

So how many days did it take to kayak back to Key West? Did I miss it?

Did you sleep, and will we hear more a out this capsize event?

Gracias in advance!

I know a number of people who have done this type of mapping, but the code you used seems to be the simplest I have seen . Thanks for sharing it.

This may very well be the first time I've seen images of local Cuba. Where were these taken? Looks like you had a blast!

As creepy as it may be, I know for sure my location over the years has been stored somewhere ever sincei grabbed a smartphone. Give me that data. I want to make a map of my own movements since 2011.

Your data and SAS
