Many early turn arounds, need to set u_min_water_depth

deployment Softened outer edges of remaining waypoints. They were getting too close to ice / islands for comfort.

deployment Battery dropping quite fast, changing optics to just downcasts. Also extending mission time to 2.5 hours due to lengthening the cross shelf legs.

CTD sampling to 1 sec. Might have been on edge of overloading.

deployment Abort was iridium for me leaving glider idle too long.

Changed TBD to 4 sec downcasts, it was a bit too large before at 2 sec.

deployment Resequenced new mission - 100_nwu
Glider will surface when it hits a waypoint, no_comms 2 hours, and UTC of midday.

Also flying on Travis Miles path:

TBD now only every downcast. Possibility of switching to every up and down at reduced resolution. Will talk to Travis about that.

deployment Had to setdevlimit on attitude_rev before getting mission to run (upon deployment) (think it might have been the zodiac motors but unsure, I told them to move & setdevlimit, one of those fixed it):
attitude_rev I u 3 100 10 3 [ 3 0 0]
