Jeb Andrews, Mason Andrews’ father, posted this on Facebook late Tuesday night: “He’s recharged and The Spirit of Louisiane is in top condition for the home stretch! A BIG thanks to Michael Fabry and the guys at G.A.S.E. for making it happen. We are keeping an eye on a monsoon on the Eastern part of the Indian sub-continent but hopefully it will be gone and he can head for Bangladesh as scheduled!”
