Fieldschool Day 13

9 08 2009

Another day with high sun and 30º c, luckily the wind changed direction to south east and toke of in strength and the waves got smaller.

Todays tasks  was to measure the rest of the frames with UMA (Underwater Measure Apparatus) and to sketch internal structures of the wreck. We got some nice sketching done of the bow and stern and al the frames got measured as well. It was the plan of getting some underwater filming done, but technical problems with the camera put an end to that.

There was a lot of activity around the 4 AM wreck, a couple more planks were removed from the underlying frames and drawing was started. Some of them finished, others need more work tomorrow.

Some frames that came loose when planks were removed, we also started to record. The frames are being recorded from all four sides and in projection view.

Evening swims can definitely be recommended around here.

Sarah and Andrew cooked a lovely vegi meal that fitted the Saturday beer perfectly.
