This record contained many, many brief speed dropouts, which
have been bridged by predictive interpolation. The speed series
ends early at line 15684 (0000 31 Jan 05). Direction is present
and good throughout.

The depth of this instrument appears to have increased by about
4 meters shortly after 22 May 04. The same increase can be seen
in records from other instruments on this mooring that carried
pressure sensors.
