Summary: Moorings recovered: 1 (#775 deployed FA 04032 ABBIE BURGESS Sep. 22-23, 2004). Moorings deployed: 2 (#776 and 777 both recovered FA 05022 MARCUS HANNA May 18-19, 2005). The subsurface mooring #774 released on Dec. 31 when the anchor connection failed. It was recovered by Frank Mirarchi on the F/V CHRISTOPHER ANDREW (FA 04065). The tripod #775 was tipped over on Nov. 15. In spite of a tangled recovery line, we were able to get it on board the MARCUS HANNA without incident on Feb. 9. Four cores were collected at Station 3, three cores at Station 2. The oxygen profiler was deployed twice at Station 3. One deployment of the oxygen profiler was made at Station 2. A refurbished tripod and subsurface mooring were deployed near the B Buoy.
