Noticed that now that the trade winds have returned that for the next few days if any passenger vessels go north through the Pailolo channel (25 kn wind and 9 ft wind waves) the seastate will be:
Beaufort Force 6, BOM 4, Likely seasickness among many passengers,
But if they go through the Kaiwi channel only (20 kn wind and 7-8 ft wind waves) the seastate will be:
Beaufort Force 5, BOM 3, Somewhat likely seasickness among passengers.
Will get an analysis of the financial requirements of MARAD up soon.
