Matt Desch @iridiumbossThis is fun stuff, thanks. T-3 weather report was for 40% concerns only about ground winds. Surprising they will still be strong at 4:30am in the morning, but will keep an eye out. Have anything to calm the winds down??
The tug boat "Pacific freedom" departed port LA yesterday at around 6 pm PT , it was berthed to JRTI yesterday, so it is likely JRTI is out at sea right now, the tug is traveling at all pace of 5 knots.
