Viking Welding & Response Marine recently completed a 36 ft. research vessel, which is being used in U.S. Coast Guard Academy coursework this fall. Christened the Michael J. Greeley Spirit of ?61, the vessel was largely funded by gifts from the Academy class of 1961 and named after a class member who passed away while a cadet at the Academy. The Michael J. Greeley adds capacity, capability and versatility to the marine research and lab work offerings of the Academy. With more than 170 sq. ft. of open working deck, 1,500-pound capacity A-frame with hydraulic winch and two 500-pound capacity davits with hydraulic capstans, hauling and sampling is more ef cient and versatile than on the smaller academy boats. For lab and sorting work there are two 4 x 3 ft. portable,  ow-though tables. The pilothouse interior features counter space for computers and a 19 in. diameter thru-hull well for various sampling and sonar instruments. Power is twin Cum- mins 220 hp diesels with electronic controls and monitoring, producing over twenty knots top speed. Designed by Response Marine, Inc. the boat is very similar to other 36 footers designed for the University of Connecti- cut and Michigan Technological University. Plans and con- struction were inspected and approved under Subchapter T regulations and Simpli ed Stability tests were conducted both with and without lifted weights. Without lifts the vessel meets stability for 19 passengers on a coastwise route. With lifted weights, the vessel meets stability for 19 passengers on a par- tially protected route.In the Yard Rolls-Royce signed a deal for the delivery of design and equipment for a live  sh carrier, to be built at the Tersan shipyard in Turkey for Faro- ese ship owner Bakkafrost. The contract is worth approximately $9m to Rolls-Royce. The vessel is a Rolls-Royce design, type NVC 386, featur- ing the characteristic wave-piercing bow. The vessel will measure 75.8 x 16m, with a carrying capacity of 3,000 cu. m., which corresponds to approximately 450 metric tons of live  sh. When it enters service, it will operate for Bakkafrost?s own  sh-farming industry, transporting live  sh from  sh farms into on-shore processing factories. On board, the  sh will be kept in three holds constructed for the optimum transportation of live  sh, with full pump-circulation capacity in a closed circuit. The system also provides for the full  ltering of water, with separate systems for load- ing all tanks simultaneously and pressurized discharge to shore. A high capacity system for de-licing will also be installed.(Photo: Rolls-Royce) Rolls-Royce to Design, Power Fish CarrierUSCG Acadamy?s New Boat November/December 201326 MTRMTR #9 (18-33).indd 26MTR #9 (18-33).indd 2612/12/2013 11:09:51 AM12/12/2013 11:09:51 AM
