Here’s a vessel I’d like to see close up . . . L/B Robert.  Each of those legs is 335′ long, allowing it to place them on the ocean floor in water as deep as 280 feet. Click here for more info on the self-propelled L/B Robert.

“Invisible gold” is the term used at the event below–subject of tomorrow’s post.  The speaker to the right is Jeffrey Grybowski, CEO of Deepwater Wind, the project to place wind turbines in +70′ of water southeast of Block Island.  It’s happening now, and all the photos in this post–except the one below–were taken in July and early August by Nate Lopez.
