Metal shavings on pitch motor slide. Need teflon.

Also, trouble communicating with DMON will continue the efforts.

Orsted 100 m pump

Recovered by Nicole Waite, Kaycee Coleman, and Joey O'Brien on R/V Petrel with Capt. Steve Evert (Stockton vessel).
Recovered with RU28.

been on 1-hr segments all day today.

Dave's setting changes helped to get glider flying again. Ebbing tide also helped. Making progress off the banks.

Adjusted dive_to to 10m, all else the same.

Once safe from the banks, will adjust yo back to normal.

RU34 on way to meet up with RU28.

RU34 got sucked onto 10-fathom banks. Struggled to get off all night.

put_u_use_current_correction 0

This morning, Dave altered yo file:
0.35 rad pitch angle
less pump
dive_to 6m, altitude of 2m
climb_to 2m

put u_alt_min_depth 1
put u_max_altimeter 6.5

sbdlist m_pressure to 8 second interval, to compare with CTD pressure better.

first hour segment, 0128.0000 CTD pressure still working and agreeing with glider

Created by: waite @ 2022-05-20 19:28:12Alert

test mission, shallow.mi - the CTD pressure wasn't working. Segment #s 0125.0000 and 0126.0000

first actual mission (100_nw.mi) segment, 0127.0000, CTD pressure did work. And agreed with glider pressure.

Unsure at this time if (A) The ctd pressure sensor was not working, but fixed itself or (B) if there was some mission problem or glider oddity, or (C) something else.
