Wrestling with wires

Hayley Hung writes:

The last two days have been relatively quiet and uneventful.  Everyone was disappointed as the ship was overcome by fog yesterday, making the expedition to Banks Island unfeasible.  Everyone was trying to finish working on their last samples and pack away equipment.  The crew lowered the tower on the front deck so that the meteorological equipment can be removed.  Sylvia and I wrestled with the wires, nuts and bolts on the tower for several hours.  The rough sea and rain made every step so much more difficult.  With Stephanie Moore
