Latest from the second gray seal. Well it looks like after ten days of
heading straight offshore he may be starting to head to the north. The last
six hours of data that we received early this morning seem to shore him
shifting direction a bit to the north. This would be a good thing, as he
is now roughly three hundred miles offshore...about 350 miles from his
release point and about 250 miles from the nearest land (nantucket Island).
 Strangely enough, he is still only about 350 miles or so from Nova Scotia,
if he keeps his present heading.....a pretty round about way to get there,
but, probably better than where he is now. right now he is off the edge of
the continental shelf, over water about 4500 meters deep or so. His rate
of travel has slowed a bit, from over 60 miles per day to about 50 miles
per day...still a pretty fast pace for a seal his size....He is still
roughly 500 miles Sable Island, where he was likely born......whew....
