Thanks to the Gaumer Family and a CSCR work team guided by Fran Collins, Cohasset's Center for Student Coastal Studies (CSCR) has a new Research Vessel


We can now offer fundraising boat tours for up to 6 passengers.  So if you'd like to tour the coastline or see sunset off Minot's contact captain Susan Bryant at 857-231-1768 to book a cruise.

We inaugurated Gallivant in her new role as CSCR's research vessel by sampling

bottom paint

to research which kind works best in Cohasset Harbor.

Using techniques borrowed from Practical Sailor magazine, we sampled different anti-fouling products, in a grid pattern, to reveal which keeps the bottom cleanest during the CSCR research season.

To serve the commercial fishermen, we also hope to apply paint samples to a plank or attach our paint-mixing sticks to a mooring ball kept in on the lobster boat schedule.
