Look how they have grown. Ten seed next to a dime on July 12 (left).
|Al opens the hatch and prepares the silo to lift on the left. Rick and Al hoist the silo out on the right. It weighs about 120 pounds.|
|Gary, Rick and Al, on the FLUPSY, are supported by volunteers on the dock who tend the lines.(And freely give advice!)|
|The silos are transported from the FLUPSY to the boat to go across the bay.|
|Oysters are counted. At this stage there about 100 oyster per liter of volume.|
|The guys from DEP Div of Fish and Wildlife have selected and marked a spot and we need to locate it.|
|Once we find the spot we take six passes to dump the silos. One pass for each silo.|
|The other boat runs a dredge to check the bottom. It all looks good. The work is finished and so we thank Gustavo and the guys from Division of Fish and Wildlife.|
