    Shark News Staff Report

    Mr. and Mrs. Buzz Healy donated a 20-foot aluminum pontoon boat, which seats 10 passengers, along with its trailer and a 50 Hp outboard motor. The Marine Science class has modified the boat this year by removing some of the seats as well as some of the cleats to provide more work space. The solid aluminum sides have also been replaced with posts and nylon net. Indoor-outdoor carpet has been laid down on the deck, and a frame has been built and secured there as well to support holding tanks for specimens.
