Results:
Couple bottom hits, discrepancy of 4 meters on altimeter and bottom. Glider did not look to slow down much, trying this for next iteration:

deployment 00180180.mlg

(might need to put altimeter data in SBD)

trying -150 cc on dives, AP pitch
climbs are full speed and battpos still

5 off bottom

deployment Altimeter bottom sampling issues, going to play with. Set up SBD for tests

deployment Adjusted route to maximize sampling area w/ remaining battery capacity as per Josh. New goto should be picked up ~12:36

deployment Switched to no igain heading control, offset of 3 degrees and 1.25 instant gain, see if we can speed her up a bit.

dkaragon
deployment Transferred sbd's from critical missions today, copied and deleted old ones and from test missions.

Retasked to 140 deg offshore with correct waypoint list and -1 as next_waypoint

retasked to 97 meters or 6 off bottom to 5 meters from surface

pitch looks good, ballast looks good, altimeter hits could be better

see how we do tonight
