The Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment (MODE) under the Office of the International Decade of Oceanography, National Science Foundation, included plans for the deployment of long-range SOFAR floats in a two degree square area approximately 400 miles Southwest of Bermuda. The floats are located by AFETR, MILS system hydrophones at Bermuda, Eleuthera and Puerto Rico. An additional station at Grand Turk Island, British West Indies, was requested to provide an expanded and more reliable location. In addition a spare installation was to be provided which could be installed within relatively short notice at Eleuthera or Puerto Rico if required. The design, logistical considerations and installation of the Grand Turk Island station are documented in this report.
