The Soto Reef Restoration project at Grand Cayman currently working on 
the 8th week has transplanted about 600 corals, moved ten tons of rubble 
and replaced large coral heads weighing in excess of 6000 lbs.  The crew 
has in excess of 4000 hours under water.  We are using Liquid Rock epoxy 
to attach corals back on the reef.  Restoration will be finiished in 
about two weeks.  At that point we will have transplanted approximately 
2500 corals.  We will be glad to share our insights with those that are 
interested.  W. Jaap, J. Morelock.
