Rados International Finalizes
Design Converting Seiner Into
Oceanographic Research Vessel
Rados International Corporation, naval archi- tects and marine engineers of San Pedro, Calif., has announced the finalization of a new design for the University of Southern California, Insti- tute for Marine and Coastal Studies, to convert an existing tuna purse seiner fishing vessel into a state-of-the-art oceanographic research vessel.
Labeled as "The region's most capable aca- demic research ship," and sponsored by the
Ocean Studies Foundation, the vessel Osprey, ex-Theresa Ann, built in 1973 by San Diego
Marine Construction Company as an 1,100-ton- capacity tuna fishing vessel, will soon provide an enormous potential and advancement for the university as a marine research platform.
Currently moored in the Terminal Island por- tion of the Los Angeles Harbor, the 220-foot ves- sel is now undergoing the necessary conversion modifications required for the implementation of oceanographic and research equipment.
Originally designed and construction super- vised by Rados in 1973, the vessel was donated in part to the University by Van Camp Sea Food
Company/Ralston Purina Company in late 1984.
The refurbished Osprey has been earmarked to provide new research functions, including resource assessment of the national 200-mile exclusive economic zone, geology of the conti- nental margin which includes seismic activity and sediment transport along continental shelves, nature of acoustical and optical scatter- ing within the oceans, relationships of atmos- pheric weather patterns to changes in marine environments, and identification of sources and distributions of marine pollutions.
The vessel has been redesigned to incorporate a slow speed maneuvering/propulsion system, multiple scientific laboratories, various oceano- graphic cranes and winches, and a complement of vital A-Frames. These in conjunction with the originally designed bulbous bow, passive flume stabilization system, and fuel efficient single diesel engine propulsion system, provide for a highly efficient research vessel and reasonable alternative for design and construction of a new- er vessel.
Completion of the conversion is expected by mid to late 1988.
