Move to Fort Lauderdale

The Global Reef Project acquired the permits to move Alchemy to Bradford Marine in Fort Lauderdale. The marine research vessel was moved on February 17, 2010, at high tide, to get her into the channel. Alchemy will be parked in a covered space while the vendors, suppliers, and architect study the scope of the work needed, and quote on the re-fit.

The Global Reef Project has three main goals with this re-fit:

1. Create a full scuba diving center in the lazerette/cockpit area, at the stern of the boat, complete with Nitrox and a wet lab space.

2. Upgrade the satellite/com/wifi system to provide full-time internet access for staff and crew.

3. Install the basic biogeochemical data collection equipment.

In addition, the Global Reef Project is doing all the normal boat maintenance activities, making this a fairly large re-fit project.
