Life of a Reasearch Team
September 23, 2008 by Peggy Stap
The weather conditions on the ocean were finally good so the weekend of September 23rd we got all the equipment ready to go out. Howard from the Elkhorn Yacht Club called as he noticed the boat sitting low in the water. The boat had been in the slip for 5 days and there was a lot of water in the boat. Had to bilge out the boat and checked it over. Let it set overnight thinking we had the problem solved but there was some water in the boat the next day. Decided not to go out but instead to pull the boat out of the water. There was a slow leak where one of the ground wires ran through the stern. So we will be doing some repairs. That is how it is sometimes in the life of a research team.
