Dingy ready?

I am not sure what this means, but I just heard from the crew that the boat pilot has gotten the dingy ready. Maybe some of you may know what this means? The pilots are not offering up information to Pats family crew of 4 on board the boat. So for now we will continue to wait......

That hopefully means they are getting ready to send Christopher to shore to greet Pat.
That was the plan so I am hoping that is what it means.

Pat does have a way of keeping us in suspense.I was worried that she may still have too many names and hours on her signs and is just trying to string it out at bit.
In reallity it is probably proving one hell of a fight over that last mile.
I just keep on watching and waiting as the minutes tick by.
Trying to work has been a waste of time.
The world verification just asked for helph-for me not Pat lets hope.

Just looking back over your posts Sarah it is a couple of hours since she was 4 miles out. It appears her speed had picked up to what was probably a bit under 2 mph. If she is in difficult going it makes sense that we still have a little more time to wait.
