Repairs on the ship's generator and satellite have been progressing since last week. We are optimistic that we will be able to get underway on Saturday. We are planning to do a little work in the Hawaiian Islands before heading towards to Johnston Atoll on Monday. Our onboard team has been catching up on backlogged work, working with the contractors on the repairs, and adjusting the remaining dive schedule to accommodate the delay.
