    Here are some pictures of the cargo hold contents:

    And the full crew with completed boat:

    By March vacation, the boat was ready to go! Here are some pictures of it ready for the deployer:


  • April 5, 2021 - Ready for deployment on the M/V Bermuda Islander

    Thanks to River Pilot Andrew Parish for meeting Ms. Swanson and bringing the Crimson Storm onboard the M/V Bermuda Islander. It is safely on board and will be launched into the Gulf Stream later this week, if conditions are right.

  • April 7, 2021 - Set to sea

    Thanks to the crew of the M/V Bermuda Islander, the Crimson Storm was launched into the Atlantic. We’ll post the full details and pictures if there are any when the crew returns back to port in NJ.

    This is the 15th miniboat launched off the Bermuda Islander!

The Crimson Storm is Morristown Beard School’s 9th miniboat, and the 15th boat launched off the Bermuda Islander. This school is breaking records!
