Tape Log: "SHL-1-17. 21 Feb 1972 Time 0752, BQR-3 modified (ship engines running) Sperm Whales: 'Carpenter fish' staccatto effects. BQR - train noise heard at times. Ship rolling noises are heavy. Sperm signal mod to low. More sounds 21 Feb. More sperm whales we chase an individual, have various course speed changes, hear metallic ping from close one we just almost hit. As we came up on it, it dove abruptly, we have these metallic-sounding clicks/pings. Made another approach, this time on a new animal (sperm). We use full speed, animal very close, laying on surface, we miss it, make new approach." SEAOCEAN
