Rain at two this morning and I did not feel so well, so I came below and slept til 7:30. Read this morning and wrote a little. No sleep as pain in back and right leg prevented this. Sewed on main on watch and was it ever hot.

Sun out in full force and I got a nice burn, tho’ it doesn’t hurt. Bathed and shaved before supper and wrote again afterwards. Square and raffee doused today and tonight at eight ballooner was set and fish, engine shut off and we have a nice wind from the NE with a NNW course.

Gil tonight: “This is no place for a clean-minded boy like me.” Ha-ha-ha.
