Down in the trough

So here is where we are. Shooting along the bottom of this meander trough traveling at speeds we have hardly ever seen before.
The next satellite shot shows the Gulf Stream in this vicinity quite well.

We'll make our next waypoint during the next surfacing later tonight, then turn left and head north into the next meander crest.
There is a warm ring up there at the top of the crest near 66W that we can use to slingshot us back to the shelfbreak if we need to. But most likely we'll skip this ring, unless we need to go back to Nantuckett. We'll at least shoot for the warm ring near 63W. Its our first possible exit point if we want to make Halifax.
