The R/V David Folger was launched today at long last! Builder’s trials and Coast Guard inspection can now begin.
Tom and crew will head out on March 11 to install the computers and peripherals, learn the ins and outs of running the vessel, and create the punch list. She is nearly ready and soon will start her journey to Vermont.
She is QUITE impressive.
Shortly after she arrives at Lake Champlain, she will start her first research work up in Mississqoui Bay, which will include senior thesis work by two geology students.
