This instrument lost its Savonius rotor on the ice during anchor

Pressure is often offscale during intervals of high speed. It
takes the value 723.5 decibars in these episodes. In general,
the pressure record is not very trustworthy. Base pressure is
434.8 decibars initially but increases to 508 decibars by the
end of the record. The increase probably is due to overstressing
of the sensor. In contrast, the instrument below this one shows
the usual slow decrease in pressure, possibly caused by line

The current meter's clock was running 6 minutes 13 seconds slow
at recovery.
