We are on our way!

(10:15 am) The RV Apalachee is moving at an impressive 23 knots per hour so we are already almost at the launch site.  The RV Apalachee is a brand new 65' research vessel delivered to the Marine Lab just a couple of weeks ago.  It is now the flagship of the FSU Marine Lab fleet and, as it turns out, today's research cruise to launch our SailBuoy is the RV Apalachee's maiden voyage!

Special thanks to Dr. Felicia Coleman, Director of the FSU Marine Lab and the Scientific Director for Deep-C, for making this cruise possible on such short notice.  Learn more about the RV Apalachee.

Some assembly required... Kris Suchdeve and Dr. Nico Wienders attach the sail to the buoy's hull.
