Location Dauphin Island, Alabama, Gulf of Mexico
Summary 300 singlebeam bathymetry lines (1165 line-km of data) plus 63 bubble pulser sub-bottom profiles collected
Info derived Water depth/seafloor elevation, subbottom profiles

Projects
Platform
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.
