Gary recently heard from NOAA regarding how long the NOAA ships will be docked here. I know we are all weary of their constant noise, but it looks like there may be an end in sight.
From CDR Matheson:
At the latest, I expect Okeanos Explorer may be here until late October. Ronald H. Brown is expected to depart in early October. Thomas Jefferson will be in and out regularly, as this is its homeport.
