The cargo ship Panthea is now at Port Everglades, Florida, and the R/V David Folger will be off-loaded Wednesday morning. Capts. Tom Manley and Richard Furbush, along with electronics specialist Chris Goodrich, are ready to start the first leg of the journey to the north after the Folger is outfitted and fueled, and basic mechanics are tested.
Mate Pat Manley will join the crew in North Carolina in a few days after attending an NSF panel in Washington, D.C.
Wish the crew smooth sailing and keep watching for updates daily!
