Here are the latest locations for "Lucky", from the past two days. It
appears that "Lucky" has spent at least two days in nearly the same
location (roughly ten miles north of Wildcat Knoll). Over the past twenty
four hours or so something odd has gone on. It appears that "Lucky" has
moved roughly ten miles to the east (and slightly north) bringing him into
Wilkinson Basin. This is a bit odd because up until now "Lucky" has
generally moved around locations that he has visited before and this is
"new" territory. This is also water that is some of the deepest in the
Gulf of Maine, and far to deep for "Lucky" to reach the bottom. This may
mean that after only two or three days "on the bank" he is again heading
back to Maine. It is too early to tell from todays data, but if we are
lucky (no pun) we may find out where he is headed by tomorrow.
