    A deep vane boring was made at a location in the Gulf of Mexico using a new vane borer. A description of the vane borer and an evaluation of its operation are given. In-place shear strengths measured with the vane to a depth of 241 ft below the water surface are compared with shear strengths from laboratory tests on undisturbed samples.
