Quid has moved west along the south coast of Cape Cod to a marshy area near
Osterville Mass.  It appears that Quid has spent some time in the shallow
bays and marshes in this area (even hauling out for  short times). One
message (with a high accuracy probability) was located in an area that MY
maps say is 3 meters ABOVE sea level (maybe climbing a hill to get a look
around??...just kidding...) This is the same general area "Bristol" visited
about a month ago (then again "Bristol" visited almost everywhere along
this shore).

As you can see from the small number of messages McHenry is turning out to
be a bit difficult.  We are getting a location or two, but for some reason
he is keeping pretty quiet.  He has centered his activity around the small
island of Muskeegut, near Nantucket Mass.  This is the location of one of
the larger gray seal haul outs in the area, so that looks good.  His dive
data does not show much deep diving, probably meaning he is not going far
from the shallows near the island.  He has hauled out several times, but it
will take a bit more data to , hopefully see a pattern in his behavior.

Bristol is doing more of the same; keeping in the same general location for
the past few weeks (an area roughly five to ten miles in diameter close to
Hardings Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.  For the past few days Bristol
has been in the shallow entrance to the Chatham Bays.

Curiouser and curiouser....After spending almost a week in the same area
offshore, Jersey headed west and has headed right to the coast of Cape
Breton Island.  So far no indication that she has hauled out, but she did
this straight line rush in about three days (roughly 120 miles).

PoeGo continues moving south and is almost to northern Newfoundland,
several hundred miles south of the northern ice he hauled out on.  There is
some ice in this area, but it is quite near to shore and right now PoeGo
appears to be far from it.  He is still hovering over water over 2000
meters deep.

till next week,
