While waiting for the engineers to troubleshoot our bow thruster issue, we saw a small manatee just off our bow. Image courtesy of the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research, Exploring Puerto Rico’s Seamounts, Trenches, and Troughs. Download larger version (jpg, 990 KB).
Okeanos got underway today for a short time until a mechanical issue with our bow thruster was noticed and we return to port. The ship's engineers spent the day troubleshooting the problem. We will need to wait until tomorrow to see if our solutions worked, but hopefully we will be back underway soon.
