SEA Currents: ocean exploration

Into the Piloting Practice Waters

Craig Marin, Assistant Professor of Maritime Studies

On our fourth day in program we are taking advantage of our proximity to shore to work our way up into a protected anchorage that should look very familiar to students (at least as they gaze at the chart in the pilot house). This river and its entrance were key elements in one of their piloting exercises on shore. Now they can see how the channel, the landmarks, and the navigational aids look in person.

A Tale of Two Watches

What a difference a day can make.  That saying comes to mind as I reflect upon the past 24 hrs while comfortably sipping my afternoon tea as students prepare for a swim call.  That most certainly was not the scene onboard Cramer just 12 hours ago when salt spray was lashing across the deck in the middle of the night and students were bundled up in their foul weather gear!

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.
