Pressure ends early at line 20796 (1030 04 may 93).

Temperature contains a gap of about 15 hours at this point
where the mooring was redeployed. During the gap, temperature
drops by almost 2 degrees, which may indicate problems either
with the temperature calibrations or the depth of the mooring.
We did not bridge temperature across the gap
