Two days were spent looking across the harbor at the Statue of Liberty as we waited for our fuel barge and then spent nine hours transferring fuel aboard once the barge did arrive. The engineers organized into teams that cycled on and off to manage the onload, performing the tasks of tank soundings, reports, and logbook records in a most professional manner. Our deck students prepared for the final leg of our voyage, entering in our voyage plan from NY to Searsport, then Castine.
