Scripps Pier Experiment Benign Conditions High Sea State Conditions

Hi Tommy,

based on the existing current and wind climatology, we picked 18:00 N, 155.5 W, as a start posit for FLIP's drift. (about 28hrs steam from PH for the tug). FLIP drift with the current, and orient itself in the wind, i.e. FLIP's hull facing the upcoming wind.
