Five civilian boats with sonar will be going out tomorrow. There will be a briefing at Treman Marina (entrance after the Hanger Theater) at 7:30 am. We are looking for experienced boaters with waterproof gear to help man the search. Please contact us if you are interested.
Due to weather conditions, we strongly ask that volunteers do not conduct independent water searches (kayaks, small watercraft, etc.) unless they are experts and have access to wetsuits and appropriate safety equipment.
