It is midnight. The sun does not set tonight. Fiona is at 70 degrees north [latitude]. More than twenty icebergs are in sight. More keep popping up on the horizon. CAVU, though, so we are blessed. I do not like motoring through the icebergs with only the radar as a lookout.
It is 40F (again). The seawater temperature is down to 48F.
2:00AM: 'Bergs and growlers in sight all watch.
7:07AM: A smoke alarm goes off. I wake up Eric. It's odd that both Joe and Eric sleep through, not only the smoke, but the loud smoke alarm bell. A hose clamp on the diesel's exhaust has disintegrated. With the engine shut down we drift an hour while the clamp is replaced.
