To date the vessel has been operating during daylight, in weather conditions of sea state 4 or less as data quality is reduced beyond these weather conditions. Currently the crew of 4 are sufficient to perform all operation and scientific duties onboard. Weather permitting it is hoped to complete Dublin Bay by end of 2009. The RV Keary coverage will be added to by the Celtic Voyager which will be surveying in the Dublin Bay/North of Howth area in late November/early December 2009.
