A bleary eyed Russ ‘Slaughter’ Hopcroft could be found bumping into walls this morning… Yesterday we received error messages during test deployments of the water sampler. Through the process of elimination it was determined that the issue must be related to a poor connection in the slip-ring, which makes the electronic connection between the conducting wire and oceanographic instruments through the winch. Thus we tore into the slip-ring, isolated the problem, and made a repair. Reassembling the unit took longer than expected. Everyone knocked off around midnight, but Russ persevered and stayed up until everything was operational.  Thanks Russ! But sorry, we need you to rock all day as well.
