No decision that I am aware of.  I am continuing at my usual pace.  Other transcribers are taking a break from this ship until they hear if it is still required.

White screen when I try to transcribe or get on the OW site 5.55am

I did a few pages of Decoding the civil war.  Quite interesting and easy to pick up.  Very similar skills needed to OW.  Will do more.

August 29th 1911 Seattle harbor
H.B.Joyce the pilot, and H.W.Frus, H.Greenwood, J.D.McDonald and C.J.Jakobsen halibut fishermen, were paid off and sent ashore, their services no longer required.

This last cruise was to discover alternate halibut fishing grounds following restrictions on U.S. vessels using Canadian fishing grounds and ports.  The Pilot had also been captain of a halibut trawling vessel.  The Albatross had exchanged its usual variety of ships boats for dories that were used for trawling in the areas investigated.

Received the ships' two prahms with oars & oar locks from Storage ashore.

Good to hear that you are doing well.

There may be a bit more dredging through the logs to be done.  Could the logs be skimmed through until the interesting sections?

Albatross subsequently departed San Francisco on 12 April 1914 and set course for the coasts of Washington and Oregon, but interrupted her survey of the fishing grounds off the coasts of Washington and Oregon, to take the Deputy Commissioner of Fisheries to the Pribilofs, on an inspection trip of the fisheries of central and western Alaska that lasted from 12 June to 22 August. Returning to San Francisco on 15 September 1914, she resumed her work off the Oregon and Washington coasts the following summer, clearing her home port on 6 July 1915. Over the ensuing months, she resurveyed the grounds she had studied during her cruises in 1888 and 1889. From the spring of 1916 into the autumn of that year, Albatross operated in the waters off southern and Lower California,[3] to learn of the "distribution and migration of tuna."

There was also a gap in the dates of the logs already transcribed that I hope could be found that cover the year of 1906 and the San Francisco earthquake and also another expedition into the north pacific after that.  On the return journey of which the Commanding Officer was lost overboard in a storm.

I think it is a standard log book meant to apply to a wide range of ships and the divisions would apply in the case of a larger warship that might have a bigger crew and a marine contingent and a wider range of drills or exercises to do.  I do not think there is a dredging drill.

H.C.Fassett used to be the resident naturalist on the Albatross.  Works for the Fisheries Commission in the Alaska region now.  Possibly in charge of the area.  St Pauls is the main town near the Fur Seal Rookeries.

Link me to the page and I will have a look.

On our way back from a quick trip, Seattle to Pribilof Is and return.
The log gives no idea why.
Nothing important happened that I could read in the hard to read text.

More tax payers money going up in coal.

Pribilof Islands are where the fur seal rookeries are.  This was a big U.S. revenue stream that needed monitoring.  They have visited before to drop off scientists or members of the Fur seal commission.
