It is true the sun does not set during the summer months in Antarctica while we are fishing in the Ross Sea. But over here in South Georgia, during the middle of winter, we have about 15hrs of darkness every day and only 9 hours of daylight. I think you should ask Miss Juanita to explain how the change from summer to winter goes from 24 hours of daylight to 24 hours of darkness in Antarctic winter.
The photo is of me driving the ship as we haul a line. It usually takes 7 hours to haul one line that is 13 kilometers long with about 10,000 hooks.
You can see the clickers for counting the fish alongside the main engine and bow thruster controls. The radar, chart plotter, echo sounder, line controller, 3 radios and CCTV controls are all in easy reach of the driving seat.
Keep up the good work with the homework Jack, it won’t be too long and I’ll home to help you with it. Love Dad.
