WTF...Is this some kind of gnarly maths question.

Cookee, I'll pm you some mobile numbers, not sure if "reliable" is best word though

We also have AIS on board as well as a Spot Satellite Messenger which is viewable through the BananaShark Website, I tried it yesterday and it all works. That way if you have a smartphone and 3G you can track us live which should be of some help!

Thanks for the numbers - We'll let you know what time we think we might be there!
