We dropped 17 ocean bottom seismometers
today, making 26 in all. The weather is cloudy but bright. There is
2-3 m of swell and this is not a very big ship, so when we were steaming
eastwards into the weather there was plenty of water arriving on deck.
Later on we turned to the west, which was more comfortable and drier.
Scientist cabins are partially below the water-line and my port-hole
gets a regular wash.
