    Actually, the boat is also used to do water sampling and lake profile monitoring of the site. One of the first boats was a trolling-motor powered dingy (pretty under powered). Another boat was destroyed in a tsunami caused by a huge landslide - a catastrophic collapse of a pit wall. Fortunately, that happened at night when no one was nearby.
