SEA Currents: c288

Under Way

Ollie Downes, A-Watch

Today is special. It’s my 17th birthday! I was “lucky” enough to have the late night watch, which meant I was awake when the clocked struck twelve. My pals rushed me over to lab the minute it was past twelve to show off a new zooplankton they found, but all I found as I opened the curtain to a dimly lit laboratory was not a rare new breed of zooplankton.

A gale during dawn watch: A harrowing adventure

Riley Palmer, A-Watch

I heard the tell-tale rustling outside of my curtain and the faint whisper signifying the start of my watch. I could already feel the cold permeating below decks as I quickly dressed in my many layers and foulies before heading upstairs to the dog house to read the night orders.

Here’s to Challenging Ourselves!

Lila Glansberg, A-Watch, Sailing Intern

Study Abroad at Sea

Note: All aboard Cramer are well today, riding out the storm at anchor in the Sakonnet River. Their plan is to remain at anchor tonight and get underway for sea early Friday morning pending weather updates.


Hello, landlubbers!  This is Lila; a deckhand (sailing intern), SEA alum (shout out to S-278!), and overall wind enthusiast.  I was lucky enough to join the crew a day before we set sail.

Galley Magic

Kim Nutt, Steward

Hello all! Kim here from the galley of the SSV Corwith Cramer! The last few days have felt like a dream as we finally shoved off from Dyer’s dock and made it out into Vineyard Sound. My outstanding assistant steward (Sarah Witcher!), intern stewards (Jen, Justin, and Wika), along with countless other helpers and dish technicians, have made working in the galley a true joy!

Today after spending a couple of days docked in Woods Hole doing trainings and waiting for a shift in the weather, we finally heard the words we had all been waiting for “All hands to the quarter deck…prepare for departure!”

Excitement builds as we spend the day preparing for sea.  All aboard our eager to head out to sea… however, before we cast off the dock lines the professional crew must pass along some important safety information and train our new recruits in the many customs and skills required of sailor-scientists.
