Last year one of the items identified regarding development was the difficulty associated with testing. Both access to a suitable test site (a pond) and a proper chase were both lacking. To remedy one aspect of this problem we have built a chase boat. The photo above is of Liam Johnston and Carolyn O'Rourke (along with Tyler "Gordo" Gordon, photo credit) glassing the new vessel, Miss Smith. The Miss Smith will be used primarily on Long Pond and should improved both our ability to monitor the Arctica's performance and reduce deployment of emergency swimmers. More photos to follow as the Miss Smith conducts her pond trials.
