SEA Currents: c273

A Sea Tale

Anna Brodmerkel, B Watch, UNC Chapel Hill

Marine Biodiversity & Conservation

If you’ve followed along with the C-273 voyage thus far, or have at least read Yage’s post from yesterday, then you might know that the Cramer ran into a bit of rain last night. While Yage was fast asleep in bed, I was on evening watch (1900-0100). Today, the B Watch mate, Finn, told us a tall tale about past work on ships, which is the inspiration for this blog post. In Finn’s words, last night “Could have been worse.”

First Rain

今天可能是在克雷姆(Cramer 船名)上最不平稳的一天了。凌晨的岗位(1:00-7:00)一直在用引擎来帮助前行。当我们上午的岗位(7:00-13:00)快结束 时,天空下起了小雨。我换下班来,吃完了美味的午餐,chili 和corn bread (各种 豆子做的汤和玉米面包),立刻钻进了我的床上,享受我凌晨岗位前的12个小时。

Having a Field Day!

Rachel Burdorf, A Watch, Colorado College

Marine Biodiversity & Conservation

Greetings all,
Today we deep-cleaned the Cramer! Instead of having class in the afternoon, we split into watches and cleaned the whole below decks area. A Watch took the Galley, B watch took the Main Salon, and C watch took the aft cabins. We clean the Cramer thoroughly every day, because grime magically appears even when we’re at sea, but today we stepped it up a notch and got everything we might have missed during the week.

Cramer Gybes and Students’ First Dip Net!

Paige Petit, A Watch, College of the Holy Cross

Marine Biodiversity & Conservation

Greetings, all!

After spending a few hours feeling nauseous at every trip below decks yesterday, it is amazing that I was able to spend most of my 6 hour watch as the dish assistant today in the galley! It feels great to (hopefully) be acquiring some sea legs, of course attributing most credit to medicine, a full belly, and a hydrated body. As a “newbie” aboard the Cramer, the crew is nothing but kind and positive.
