Your boat can be a sailing dinghy or a 100-foot yacht and anything in between. Depending on the size of your boat, the scientific assignments and sampling data may vary, simply because of the size, weight, and requirements for the sampling equipment needed. Temperature can be one of the simplest measurements up on the surface, using an underwater drone ready for 1000 depth monitoring the seabed one of the heaviest and most advanced.
The boat and scientific equipment match-making
Text about the possibilities with larger vessels and possibly the installation of more heavy-duty equipment or even lab database servers ets...just to demonstrate the span under which we operate.

Sailing electric or with a fossil fuel engine
Text about the engines if there is one onboard – be it an outboard or inboard engine. The reasons why sailing is so good and doesn't affect water and air sampling (Image: Electric sailboat)
Text about the conditions and pragmatic positive thoughts for those who have smaller boats and kids with dinghies (Image: Dinghy and young crew)
A keel boat 20-50ft
Text about what kind of space, equipment and potential safety equipment that would be practical to have onboard – like a spinnaker boom to use in order to either get away from the hull with equipment or used as a crane etc. (Image: Average class around 30 ft sailboat)
A yacht 50-100ft and beyond
