Jim "Mort" Mortier was the radio officer on the R/V Hero for the last USARP cruise from Ushuaia to Port Hueneme, and he sent these photos. the pennant, and this newspaper article. The above photo was enlarged from the 8 October 1984 article in La Estrella, the Valparaiso, Chile newspaper (left). The translation of the headline is "A Chilean was the "mother" of the crew of the oceanographic ship. The Hero returns to the United States, where she will end her service." The article discusses a female Chilean scientist on board. If your espaņol is better than mine, you can read the story. For the photos below, I'll use Mort's captions.
"Here is a shot up the main mast. The orange bucket on the left is for a watchstander (ice, wildlife, etc.). When U was up there taking these photos, the First Mate (Wade Church, from Hudson, Wisconsin) asked me how I got up there. I told him that I climbed the ratlines. He replied, 'I hope you dumb... don't fall coming down cause those ratlines are rotten as s... If you fall on my watch I'll tell them you fell over the side and toss your busted carcass over myself.' I slid down the forestay instead."
"...and aft from said bucket."
"Here's one from the bridge overlooking the foc'sle."
"And one last photo facing for'd with the main, jib and stay sails set."
Next...the Hero heads for the Oregon Coast....
