Science and Technology Log

I went to the Pilot House this morning to continue working on my navigating underway skills and discovered that the cruise plan had changed and that the ship will anchor in Eagle Harbor tonight.  I am given the two course plot accordingly. According to the weather report, we will run into some bad weather on route to Eagle Harbor.

The rain is shown by the heavy dotted areas and the ship is anchored in the center.
