Day 9: We are shellbacks!
We crossed the equator this morning and we are officially in the South Pacific ocean! A proper ceremony was held and Neptune granted us permission to transition from lowly polliwog to honorable shellback. Photos and transcript to come when we get to wifi. We’re making good time now and the winds are in our favor, finally – must have something to do with that rum we gave Neptune. We should be pulling into Isla San Cristobal, Galapagos tomorrow.

This has been awesome to follow, and yes, as a shellback, was curious if Wags would host a proper ceremony for the pollywogs!
He was still a lowly polliwog, too! Can you believe it? 24 years in the Navy and he had to sail across in Gadabout to earn shellback status.
