The last few days have been a bit rough, with intermittent rain, winds at 15 – 30 kts, and 6 – 10 foot seas, but that didn’t delay our progress at all. When I woke up for watch late yesterday morning, the sun was shining, the seas were calm, we successfully completed recovery of the OBSs that we had deployed on Line 2, and we were in transit to the beginning of Line 4 to begin our redeployment. Now, over the past 26 hours, we have deployed OBSs along the entirety of Line 4 (22 instruments) and begun our transit to the south end of Line 3 to begin recovery of those instruments.
Until next time,
