Science - Stern shot

Another first for me for 2004 was being able to see the Healy from the waterline, in a small boat called a Hurricane. The small boats are used in mooring recoveries - when the mooring floats to the surface, the small boat crew takes a hook and line from the ship and attaches it to the mooring so that the ship's winch can haul it all in. I took this shot while the mooring was being hauled aboard-- I think the most interesting thing is how wide the Healy looks from the water.
