Looks like "Lucky" is still moving. From yesterday's data it appeared that
he might head along the coast. Instead it appears that he has headed
offshore and is now roughly 40 miles offshore from the nearest land. He is
almost due east of his release point just south of Portland, Maine. From
this location offshore he could head in any number of directions, either
back towards the coast of Maine New Hampshire or Massachusetts, or continue
to head offshore.

Hopefully we will se in the next few days where he will go...
