The scientists from UTB were onboard today as we headed out in moderate seas.  The NOAA sea state report was calling for 1 to 3 foot seas, but they felt more like 3 to 5 on the way to the Clipper.  Once we were tied off to the Clipper, the scientists were treated to deep blue waters and reported being able to see the wreck in the water from 30 feet.  Water visibility was in the 20 to 40 feet range down to 90 feet.  Divers reported seeing large schools of juvenile amberjack, a school of snapper hiding from the currents behind the kingpost, butterfly fish, rock grouper, triggerfish, and an assortment of bristle worms, damsel fish and blennies.  One diver reported seeing “a large grouper” ducking into the Clipper’s ballroom, most likely a goliath or black grouper.
