Life aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer, alongside at Dyers Dock

SEA Semester

After the SEA Semester’s Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean program (C-290) ended in St. Croix in March, a professional crew returned the SSV Corwith Cramer to Woods Hole, where it arrived April 18th.  Since then, the ship and a small crew have been alongside at Dyers Dock, making the ship ready for its next voyage, when the time is right.  Captain Kevin Murray is the master of the ship.  We asked him about daily life aboard the Cramer.

We’ve MADE IT!!  We are tied up to the dock in downtown Honolulu and I got to command the vessel when docking which was quite fun and INTIMIDATING.  We arrived Monday and had Tuesday off to relax and re-connect with the outside world and family/friends before starting to get ready for our next leg.

Here is one of our favorite chocolate chip recipes. It’s peanut butter- chocolate chip, its delicious, and just so happens to also be gluten free, not that you would know. They are so tasty!

If you make them, we’d love to know if you liked them and to see pictures shared on social media!

No need to fear, autonomous data collection is here!

These days, our global demand for science is apparent. We sit on the edge of our seat awaiting the results of the newest coronavirus treatments, relying heavily on scientists working worldwide to provide hope for our future. This is the short-game - we’re in the weeds and need a solution yesterday.

Today is officially 30 days since we left New Zealand! One of the ways we know that it’s been 30 days is all of the music we had downloaded on our phones from Spotify has expired (a heavy sigh was heard around the ship)
