Quid has continued south along the east coast of Long Island N.Y.  still
keeping 7-10 miles offshore.

Bristol is still in roughly the same location along the Rhode Island coast,
near the Conn. border.  Our last location put Bristol 5-6 miles offshore,
heading between Long Island and Block Island.  If this is a real location
hit it may mean Bristol is moving offshore again.  Locations from early on
the 12th show that Bristol had hauled out for at least several hours.

past two days.

After staying in roughly the same location for several days PoeGo moved
west towards the coast.  Our most recent locations put him thirty to forty
miles off the coast of southern Labrador.  They also show that he has again
hauled out most likely on ice.
