Side scan sonar update

The first phase of the Sea of Crete project is finishing up. Dwight Coleman writes, Weather is great. We have collected about 300 nautical miles of side scan sonar data, 400 meters to each side, and have about 120 potential targets.

We are just about to put Echo back in for the third lowering and will be recovering at midnight tonight. We'll steam in to Iraklion, arriving around 7:30am.
