Dive Notes:

Team expected a south current, so mapping team dropped in about 300' north of benchmark #5 and swam south along reef edge looking for the marks. Unfortunately, the current was only slight, but it was to the north. Map team was again unsuccessful, as we could find none of the benchmarks. No other team members found the marks either, but fish counters did fish counts in the vicinity of where the benchmarks should have been. It was somewhat disorienting approaching the benchmark locations from the north, when we normally approach from the south. After 20 minutes of searching, Map team surfaced and aborted dive.
