Identifier 13BIM03
Alternate names BIER-Geophysics
Purpose Collect singlebeam bathymetry in the nearshore, surf zone, and around Hewes Point.
Location Northern Chandeleur Islands, LA
Summary 1) Geophysics in the surf zone, nearshore and around Hewes Point

Comments Additional Equipment Used: Batteries, Laptop
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
