Well, I feel like my cabin should be certified as a meat locker. The thermostat is apparently broken and the AC has been running on full. The temperature is set to keep it around 20 C, it was 11 this morning at midnight when I went to bed. That's around 55 F for the rest of you. Called engineering and put on extra clothes to go to sleep.
Was better when I woke up, around 19 C, so maybe they fixed something.
Feeling much better today. Only took one dramamine instead of the usual two last night and none so far this morning. Will see how well I make it as the day progresses.
Crazy morning. Forgot that Sunday is barbecue day on the ship. So I woke up to a breakfast of barbecue, which is their special lunch meal on Sundays. While I love barbecue, somehow first thing in the morning seemed wrong. I settled for a hamburger.
Weather continues sunshine and wind. We are making better time today, almost back to 8 knots. We should arrive at our work site tomorrow sometime. Depends on the sea state how long we will be staying there. They have a big cementing job to do, but it requires putting the input pipe into a small space in the grill surrounding the instrument on the sea floor. They don't want to damage the instrument by hitting it. Should be entertaining to watch. Assuming all goes well we will be there about 36-48 hours and then off to Victoria.
