Hello Mike.

Hope all is well.  Finally we have completed the work on Vulcan and
weather permitting, now planning to sail her from Adelaide to Tasmania
next week, following the continental shelf from SE of Kangaroo Island to
King Is.

Hoping to pick up some interesting pelagics on the way.  Would you send
me the co-ordinates for the Atlantic Petrel sighting please?

If all goes well and the boat is still floating after Tasmania, we are
planning to be in Torres Strait for most of next wet season, spending
the coming dry along the Cape Yorke coast.

I have set up a CDMA dial up modem for the laptop so we can connect to
the internet from the boat while at sea. Although the connection speed
is slow at (14.4 Kbps) and expensive using mobile phone rates, hopefully
i will be able send and receive emails when in range. If it works, my
email address will remain unchanged and i intend to stay subscribed to
birding-aus.  I have setup a filter to truncate messages larger than 18
KB so attachments will have to wait until we connect to a normal phone
line when we get to port.

I will phone you when we see anything to report.

Kindest regards to all

Ian May
