We experienced no problems with the coring winch or coring lines during the leg. We used the aft core line exclusively. Two cuts of 150 m were made and one big cut of 1200 m, leaving the current total length at 6600 m. The forward core line was newly installed at the end of Leg 175. This line was not used during Leg 176 and is currently 9525 m in length. Due to the circumstances under which we stopped coring, and the belief that coring would ultimately be resumed, the aft core line was not coated with rust inhibitor.
