Hot, hot, hot.

The time is 2.18pm, it's 100 degrees below decks and a good deal hotter above.

To keep cool we are soaking the decks with water every couple of hours. The evaporation brings the temperature down by around 5-7 degrees. Running all the fans below decks. Showering every couple of hours. Drinking gallons of iced water...

And its forecast to reach a heat index of 125 tomorrow. I am dreaming of ice cream and polar regions....

Just seen that there is a,severe weather warning( tornado watch) out on part of the Florida coast near Panama City, must be the heat!
