With less that one afternoon of training, these sailors (on their own w/o help from LBA) obtained a fine hydrographic survey of Vermilion harbor using WINOPS.

ACOE Hydrographic Surveyor Dave Witmer aboard Buffalo District Hydro Vessel. Dave was kind enough to share coordinates and files of information about Vermilion Harbor to assist in a timely initialization of the WINOPS DPS and Hydro systems. Thanks again Dave.

Vermilion Harbor is a great small town with sailing lessons for 8 year olds.
