After arriving in port we had several hours of cleaning and prep for deck tours. Alpha was stood down at 2300 and then were given the next twenty four hours off for some much needed rest.

First full day in Port Colburn. Yesterday proved to be a very long day for alpha watch. We stood from 0700 till 1300 whem we anchored about eight miles from the dock. After two hours down all hands were called to pick up the hook and get bqck under way. We were riding through a fairly good chop whem another hand and I were sent up the fore to loose out t'gallants and the foresl. We had quite a ride as we were tossed about.
