Science Support By Icebird
Cath and her team are very keen to support science expeditions in any part of the world, and Icebird is ideally suited, with her large garage and door opening directly to the water. In addition her carbon Aero-rig with its fixed booms that rotate with the mast can be used for lifting and swinging heavy equipment over the side, or can provide a platform for persons positioned over the water. In addition the free standing mast means that the decks are remarkably clear of obstacles and clutter associated with rigging wires.
Previous science expeditions include Oregon State University for tagging humpback whales and University of British Columbia Orca Study.
