Hawai'i Coral Reef Network

Hawai'i Coral Reef Network helps to install Pin Moorings at Pu'u Olai, 
one of Maui's most popular scuba-diving and snorkeling sites

See front page story in the April 11 issue of  Maui News

Doug Stewart uses a pneumatic drill attached to a lift bag and 100 feet of hose in about 40 feet of water off Pu'u Olai. The hole was filled with a stainless steel pin and concrete during Sunday's operation. A mooring buoy will be attached to the pin so dive and snorkel boats don't risk damaging coral with anchors and anchor chains. Photo by Carrie Robertson
