27-Dec-2005 -- I have been a Degree Confluence Project enthusiast for a few months since I happened upon an article in some outdoor magazine that I was reading at the time… or at least I think that is how it went.
Unfortunately, due to my nature of employment I was shortly thereafter travelling to Trinidad to resume work on an offshore construction, diving support vessel, and unable to participate in the quest for some local Confluences. It was not until a couple of days ago that I was sitting on the bridge of the Seaway Kestrel and chatting with the Survey supervisor about such an international project did I realize the potential for mapping a Confluence in this area.
We delved into the Internet at a feverish pace searching for some information that would authenticate a possible opportunity. What we found was 10N 61W that was in our projected route for travel the following day. It would seem that fate was on our side and all we had left to do was snap the pictures to prove it.
The landmass in the pictures is looking north at Galeota Point as we cruised over the Confluence, which was globally positioned using the ship's survey/navigational computers.
