Bad weather and engine problems has forced a cancellation of the DXpedition. The ship is heading back to Chile. Looks like a major DXpedition using Flex gear will have to wait for the next attempt.

Yeah, it sucks but everyone is safe.
That is most important.

What a shame and what an adventure it has been regardless.  Here's to the next attempt.

From the experience of 24 1/2 years in the Navy, they don't call them the roaring 40's and Furious 50's for no reason.  Add mechanical failure and it gets unworkable.  At least I will have my Flex if there is a next time.
