My mate Mike Brissette from MosaicHydro is running a training course in Portsmouth NH in October. Mike is a fantastic tutor and I think they are using the Substructure vessel, which is probably the best inshore vessel on the Eastern Seaboard and one of the best in the world. More info below. Excellent price too for what you get.
