Dr Jeffrey M. Schell, Chief Scientist

After a week at sea with no land in sight, the presence of the Boston cityscape on the horizon and the crisscross of scurrying boat traffic has been nothing less than dramatic.  However, our intrepid sailor/scientists remained focused on their duties and brought us safely to anchor near Georges Island, part of Boston Harbor proper.

Whales (Wh’ls)

Bonjour (as the sailors say),

It has been a fun time here on Mama Cramer (Where’s Daddy Cramer?). We are in Stellwagen Bank if you hadn’t noticed yet, but we can see large ‘fish’ called whales or in sailor lingo wh’ls.

The fog is gone!

Tamara Crawford and Jackson Karas , B-watch

This morning we emerged from the fog. The ship made way at a fast pace; we soon left far behind the cloaking Stratus cloud that for so long darkened our horizons. We had a nice breeze, which allowed us to sail with six sails. In addition to the four normal triangular sails, we raised a topsail, which is square, and an additional triangular sail at the bow.

Today was cold. The morning started off sunny and moderately cloudy, but all of a sudden, the fog set in. We could barely see 10 feet in front of us, and it brought a huge mass of moist air. Our hair became engulfed in droplets of dew, and we turned on the fog horn, which was very loud and scary.

Hello from a wavy ship!

Charlotte, Indi, Young, C Watch

Hello.

This is now our 4th day at sea (without seeing land). C watch has completed a full rotation of watches. Today during our watch from 1300 to 1900, there were a lot of big waves and plenty of things to keep us occupied.

Another Super Day

Eliza, Ariane, Tamara, Diego, Eleni, Jackson, Tim, B Watch

Hey there land people!   

It was quite a thrilling and busy day on the Corwith Cramer! Amongst the mighty waves, we saw a large pod of common dolphins (a few of which rode our bow) and flying fish just a few hours later. Meanwhile in the lab, there was lots of processing going on because this morning we had our first Super Station on the Continental Shelf.

SEA Semester

Today was a beautiful day with light winds aboard the Corwith Cramer. There were many exciting sightings, including a pod of dolphins that swam close to the ship during our afternoon watch.

First Day Underway!

Audrey, Alfonso, Jaxon, Young, C Watch

SEA Semester

Ahoy land dwellers!

We are now underway! The shipmates are taking time to adjust to our new watches and learning many useful sailing tactics.


Jeff Schell, Chief Scientist

What a day!  The first day is always packed full.  There is so much to learn about our new home before our sailing/scientific mission can begin.
