As Long As No One Got Hurt …

October 24, 2010

What a terrible group for Leg 1 of the student cruises! Thirty first years wandering in the way on a ship where I’m trying to learn how to do operations for the first time. We did a box core and used the portable winch – which I had never done before:

Tolls:
2 hard hats lost
2 hard hats broken
3 box core deployments
1 box core failed to trigger
2 Van Veen Grap deployments
6 surface plankton net tows
1 broken net tripper
2 deep plankton net tows
48194189in of rain (possibly an exaggeration)
10ft of kevlar line snapped off
6 CTD casts

Glad that’s over. At least the internet still works …
