- Hire a barge to transport materials
- Buy a barge to transport materials

- Contact local marinas to arrange staging space for art boats.
- Contact Hiltons to inquire about using their property as a staging and launch space

- Search for barge for purchase/rental
- Patio boats can comfortably take 15 people, 19 max. More than that, and they're likely to capsize.
- Limited number of patio boats at Paradise Point.
