I dont see how It could possibly be used for that from a finiancial standpoint, not that many people want to go to the gardens to support the costs....Ive heard some other ideas that are in the works that sound ALOT better

The other boats that run regular trips to the gardens are booked to capacity. I would think that the Big E would have no trouble at all staying booked. Believe it or not people actually come from all over the world to spend three or four days diving the Flower Gardens from a live aboard.

I have heard a few more realistic rumors about where the Big E is going though.

commercial dive boat is what i heard. oil field work in zero visibility. not recreational dive boat. rec boats "fling and spree" are the flower garden haulers. clear water, pretty fish and coral.
