SurvTech Solutions is thrilled to announce the Hydrographic Surveying Department's newest vessel – the 2023 21' Lifetyme Cabin Work Boat, affectionately named "Gone Mappin'". As our hydro department continues to expand, this investment represents our commitment to providing cutting-edge technology and resources to our team of experts.

"Gone Mappin'" is not just a boat; it's a platform designed to excel in hydrographic surveying tasks. With a second Norbit iWMBS system at our disposal, this boat empowers our team to carry out various tasks, making it a versatile tool for multiple projects. The boat's deck space and specially installed Davit make deploying survey equipment a breeze, enabling us to efficiently work with tow fish, unmanned surface vehicles (USVs), and other essential tools for comprehensive data collection.

Marine Mobile LiDAR Abilities

The boat's thoughtful design doesn't stop there. Equipped with a side access door and a dive ladder on the back deck, "Gone Mappin'" guarantees easy access for divers, streamlining underwater inspection and exploration tasks.

Our new boat significantly enhances our capabilities, allowing us to undertake an extensive array of hydrographic projects. These include:

- Multi-beam Bathymetry

- Single-beam Bathymetry

- Single Beam Dual Frequency Bathymetry

- Side-scan Sonar

- Interferometric Sonar

- Marine Mobile LiDAR

- Marine Mobile Imagery (360°)

- Underwater Video

- Sector Scan Sonar (Mesotech)

- Sub-bottom Profiling

- Marine Magnetometry

- Marine Seismic Surveys

- Marine Geophysical Surveys - Boomer & Pinger Systems

- Marine GPR Surveys

- Underwater Imagery

This boat opens up a world of possibilities for underwater mapping and analysis. From seafloor mapping to marine archaeology environmental assessment to infrastructure inspection, the capabilities of "Gone Mappin'" are limited only by our imagination.

SurvTech Solutions' commitment to pushing the boundaries of hydrographic surveying remains unwavering. With the introduction of "Gone Mappin'", our Hydrographic Surveying Department is poised to redefine industry standards and set a new benchmark for precision, efficiency, and innovation.

As we embark on this exciting journey with our new 21' Lifetyme Cabin Work Boat, we are excited to continue collaborating with clients and partners to unlock the mysteries of the underwater world and contribute to sustainable resource management, marine conservation, and scientific exploration.

Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming projects and accomplishments made possible by the capabilities of "Gone Mappin'." Together, we'll navigate new waters and chart a course toward a brighter hydrographic future.
