NOAA Teacher at Sea
Onboard NOAA Ship Ka’imimoana
October 4 – 28, 2006
Mission: TAO Buoy Array Maintenance
Geographical Area: Hawaii
Date: October 28, 2006
Plan of the Day: Transit to 8N/International Date Line and Work on Cruise Report.
I woke up very sleepy. I think I am winding down myself. My batteries are slowly running out. I started writing my End of Cruise report for the Field Operations Officer and cleaned up the stateroom.
At the day’s end was tournament games all around. I played sequence and darts, and lost both. Chris, one of the deck hands taught me a short splice and an eye splice.
I assisted the ET guys with updating my Intranet webpage, and I watched a movie with the Chief Scientist, Patrick. All in all, a pretty uneventful day.
