Legacy REAFs are personalized by with at least 50 % of reef modules named, or through art work set in the concrete and by imprinting logos.
Legacy REAF's are commonly depoyed on untreated wood pallets, modules are of handcast complex marine enhancing materials weighing about 3 tonnes in all.
Personalizing extras can include Time Pyramid reef module with a USB stick full of images (placed inside a plastic container).
Or photo ceramic tiles. Cast bronze plaques can also be set in concrete modules.
Please note that Legacy REAFs do not incorporate cremation ashes into concrete as this would be considered culturally inappropriate in Aotearoa and contrary to marine enhancement efforts as we currently understand them.
Holding a boating dedication ceremony above a reef built in memory of a loved one is very appropriate.
Far from being a static monument, a Legacy REAF is a living entity.
See Green Gifts for our module designs and costs. As a basic guide to cost, a standard Legacy REAF cluster containing personalized reef modules and weighing around three tonnes costs around $9,850. This includes the registered GPS deployment centre complete with certification.
