R/V McArthur is towed out the jaws – but may return (with a new name) sooner than we think.

R/V McArthur II enroute to Seattle

Former NOAA research vessel R/V McArthur II is towed out through the Newport Jaws for the last time as “The McArthur,” having been just sold by NOAA to an outfit in Seattle. There, the McArthur will be refurbished and re-configured to accommodate a wide variety of ocean research missions – not necessarily for NOAA – but for other oceanographic and marine science institutions. So we may see the old ship with a new name calling on the Port of Newport in the not-too-distant future.

McArthur II’s most recent work before being commissioned was working on the Gulf Oil spill that happened a few years back in the Gulf of Mexico.

Both the McArthur and Ka’imimoana were stripped of much of their NOAA related equipment but will live to sail again unlike HMSC’s recent replacement of the R/V Wecoma with the R/V Oceanus. The R/V Wecoma was towed to Ensenada Mexico where it was chopped up for scrap.
