Summary:  CalCOFI 1704SH - 28 Mar - 20 Apr 2017, 104 stations occupied; sailed from 10th Ave Marine Terminal at 1600PDT 28 Mar 2017. All scheduled stations were successfully occupied - 82 stations on Leg I, 22 on Leg II. Personnel were exchanged at Monterey 15 Apr 2017 at 0900PDT. Other than rough weather three days into the cruise slowing station transits, station operations were performed without issues. With fewer analytical personnel aboard, Leg II's CTD-rosette seawater sampling depths were reduced to 12 versus Leg I's 20-24 sampled depths.
