    Per request, I uploaded an updated Monica Lee sinking video at Youtube. Just do a search for "Sinking Monica Lee".

    The new video has an updated intro, higher resolution, and a new outro with names of "thank you's".

    Still working on the 30-minute version showing all work since October.

    To everyone involved in the planning, preparation, clean-up, inspection, deployment, sinking and project documentation of the tugboat "Monica Lee":

    Thank you for your advice and support and for helping giving an ol' lady a new purpose. The deployment of the Monica Lee is an unforgettable experience. We are happy and proud to share this experience with a great team of marine professionals. This project presented a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow.

    We thank the US Coast Guard team and their support vessel for escorting our towing convoy safely through the fog. Thanks to Candy Hansard and the numerous volunteers of the Emerald Coast Reef Association for their selfless hard work on all levels (quite literally), and the representatives of Okaloosa County and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for letting us be a part of this project, for going above and beyond and giving us the thumbs up. You know who you are. Thank you!

    We have started posting some of the footage on - here is the link and facebook:
