page for a list of references for Coastal's equipment.
Coastal began in 1978 by purchasing and leasing a wide variety of
oceanographic equipment made by other manufacturers.
Over the years it became evident that most lacked the attributes we
valued most: economy, reliability, convenience, and versatility.
Through our experiences with government agencies,
universities, consulting engineers, and industry, we learned that
our clients have hours or at most days, not weeks to get started.
Simplicity of operation, not confusing manuals or software, is
essential. Equipment must be
flexible; and, most of all, it must do its job.
