Mike et al,

Locations on both seals today.

"Casino":

Continues to move south along the coast.  Moved about twenty miles or so
from yesterday.  Dive data tells us that he has done some of his deepest
diving to date (about 200 meters) or about 650 feet deep.

"PoeGo":

Two more locations and a number of data messages (best day so far).  The
locations put him about 50 miles north of Lubec Maine in the Bay of Fundy.
After eight days at sea we have five location points with a total distance
covers of 310 miles.  Mean daily speed is 37 miles per day.   (maximum of
53, minimum of 27).  The points we have so far line up in an almost
straight line (sort of looks like a line drive up the Bay of Fundy).  Below
is some dive data from a six hour period from 18:00-24:00 (GMT) late on the
22nd.  This shows that "PoeGo" has done some dives to as deep as 825 feet
and one dive over 45 minutes long(and NO dives shorter than 2 minutes long)
