SEA Currents: corwith cramer

Ode to Zooplankton

Macy Littell , Starboard/B Watch, Wellesley College


Cramer is sleepy today as she rocks back and forth at anchor. We arrived in St. Thomas yesterday after a short sail from Francis Bay, St. John. We still have a little bit of the bay with us, sitting in jars and bottles ready to be processed and analyzed. Two of those bottles are mine, filled with green-brown murky water, a strikingly different color than the rich teal sea they were collected from. Inside my vials, hundreds of plankton swim and float, causing the muddy color.

We left our Anchorage in Cape Judith, Rhode Island, and headed to Block Island Wind Farm! There were some heavy winds, so we reefed the Mainsail.

A Busy Day on the Corwith Cramer!

Jeff Schell, Chief Scientist


Another busy day aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer!  The new crew have really taken to their new home and have spent the day diligently learning more about their responsibilities during various emergency scenarios:  M.O. B (Man Over Board), Fire and Emergency, and Abandon Ship.  But I am getting ahead of myself.

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.
