Atv # Oil Checked: all ATVs full
Atv # Fuel Used Gals: all ATVs was used, but they are almost good
Atv # Tires Status: all ATVs OK
Atv # Hours Used Day: all ATVs run time 30 minutes
Atv # Notes and Comments: #1 ATV’s seat cover totally ripped, no gas cap vent line. belt. # 2 seat cover is partially ripped, rough idle, no gas cap vent line. #3 backside cargo rack very bent & plastic bent due to cargo rack being bent, but plastic is not clacked, rear break lamp cracked. ATV #4 gas cap vent line broken, parking brake does not hold vehicle at all. Red Honda (#5) rear left plastic by aft left seat is cracked 8 inches, brake light cracked, and rough idle. All ATVs numbers rew-written. Red Honda put #5. All lights (low beam, high beam, brake) work properly.
All ATV's start up great. ATV 3,5 have the rough idle. Crew 164 reported #4 had some difficult shifting with transmission but we could not duplicate the problem and #4 operated very well. Unsure which ATV had a possible bent axle/off balance wheel (ATV 1?) but all worked fine. Maybe DG fixed the wheel? All ATV's operate great, with the exception of the rough idle on two machines and as known: ATV5 has no reverse.
GreenHab: The white tarp (skin) is ripping in numerous places. The entry way zipper area is completely separated. The tape simply came off of the zipper. Shannon advised to contact Nick for a solution of either solid panels (acrylic) or similar material that HIGH SEAS uses on their dome. Will CC Nick in the Green Hab report.
Summary of Engineering activities: Static tank filled from loft tank. ATVs evaluation and training
Questions and Concerns to Mission Support:
Water: trailer tank is still empty, we ask for refill the tank.
Gasoline: Two 5 gallon 'jerry' can's are still empty, we ask for refill the tanks.
