Question 1: T-Birds asked "Can you show us your navigation route online?"
Absolutely, but I want to give you the opportunity to try plotting the route first.
Go to http://orvalguita.googlepages.com/oceanographicresearch and scroll down to Part 1 "Charting ORV Alguita's Voyage." You can either chart ORV Alguitas Voyage on a paper chart or in the 3-D satellite imagery program "Google Earth." Use the coordinates that the crew has been providing in their messages from the vessel!
