Olive Oyl is one of three miniboats deployed in late November out of Barnegat Bay, NJ. The school delivered her to the dock with a live Facebook recording.
The Olive Oyl was deployed on November 27, 2017 well offshore the Delaware Shelf from the longliner F/V (fishing vessel) Sea Farmer.

The Eighth Graders have taken part in this project for the very first time this year, 2017. They are very excited to see where their boat will eventually land up!
They are one of three eighth grade classes from their school to have boats in the ocean, the others being Allons-Sea and The Black Pearl.
