The Last Dive

August 21, 2010

We are in the midst of the last dive. We delayed this dive as long as possible in hopes of fixing one of the sonars on the robot. It’s crucial to the science that we are conducting out here and so we even paid one of the engineers from the sonar company to get on a boat and come out here. The first boat he got on almost sank so he switched to a fishing vessel and didn’t get here until early this morning.

As a bonus, the fishing vessel was really nice and gave us some fresh fish!

Unfortunately, he didn’t bring the right spare parts … so we never got it fixed.

But in any case, we have to head back to Newport at noon tomorrow … so we’ll do whatever science we can without it.
