Project 5017, Site 2, Hole A - a definite improvement in working conditions!

The barge was towed yesterday to the vicinity of Site 2 and anchored today. It was a long, hard process, but everyone pitched in to help. A very nice example of cooperation between the science crew and the drillers, with PIs Steve Goldstein and Moti Stein and Project Manager Michael Lazar jumping in the water to help Beau Marshall drag the anchor cable to the post onshore. There is a good feeling of expectation as we begin to core again with the night shift.
