Mike,

Here are the moist recent locations for "Lucky". This should catch us up
from the weekend until today. Over the weekend, "Lucky" appears to have
kept near the same location around Ledbetter Island near the west coast of
Vinalhaven Island Maine. From the number of signals per pass, it appears
that he was hauling out for at least a part of this time. Early yesterday
it appears that he has begun to move south near the coast again, and his
latest locations have him about 2.5 miles offshore of Sprucehead , Maine.
This puts him roughly half the distance back to the location where he has
spent most of is time near shore (Cape Small...also near the location that
he stranded). Right now, however there is no way to tell if he will
continue near the coast or, once again move offshore. Hopefully, we will
get some more information over the next few days to figure this one out.

Some numbers so far...103...the number of days tracked, so
far...790..number of locations in the track so far...(works out to about
8/day)...1950...number of miles the track covers (this represents the
minimum distance covered by "Lucky" in his travels) this works out to
roughly 18 miles per day of travel on average.

Attached is a map of all locations ("bad" locations edited out) so far...
