Thirteen months – we’ve logged over 100,000 sea miles, participated in 17 rescue operations, completed 3 years of underwater research. Congratulations. I just hope your memories of this tour are as warm as mine. As many of you know, this boat has been a dream of mine. I’d like to thank all of you for making this dream come true. Some of us are going on to the next tour, others are moving to newer opportunities. But I’d like to wish all of you great success. Thank you, and good luck.
