Detailed Description

Wayne Baldwin, Alex Nichols, and Brian Andrews get the 512i chirp subbottom profiler back on deck! The instrument weights ~500lbs. and requires the ships A-frame to lift it! We only take the chirp out of the water when we need to perform maintenance, transit rapidly, or for weather. We always try to get the chirp back in the water ASAP so we can get back to data collection.
