Time on station can last anywhere from 36 to 72 hours, with the exception of “demi” stations where we stop for a bonus grab of the upper 1000 meters of water (these typically last 3-4 hours). Between stations, transit times can last anywhere from 12-24 hours and are a good time to catch up on rest. This afternoon during transit I had some time to do laundry and take a quick hammock nap. Some of the crew members have been putting out fishing lines in search of Mahi-mahi; the lines drag behind the back of the boat while we’re steaming (below). The black bungee lines stretch when a fish is hooked, no luck yet!
