    Attached is the latest data from "Wadadli" from
    this weekend. Note the
    past two days. On these two days we received
    an increased number of
    messages and our first location with a reliable
    (2 LC ) accuracy. It
    appears that "Wadadli" has continued up the
    Bay of Fundy and is now roughly
    15 miles from three points of shoreline. It is
    possible that he could
    continue another 50 miles or so up the bay, but
    we should keep in mind that
    the tides in this area are extreme and tidal flow
    is considerable. His
    pattern for the past two days appears to be to
    have traveled roughly fifty
    miles upthe bay in a relatively straight line (this
    is in contrast to his
    erratic movements for the past weeks). The last
    few points appear to show
    that he has stopped in the middle of the bay for
    a time. It will be
    interesting to see which way he continues,
    however he will have to reverse
    direction if he is going to get out of the bay.

    (attached is a map of the recent points...)
