Ships
The research vessel John H. Martin was donated to Moss Landing Marine Laboratories by Mr. Jeff Meyer. The 56-foot vessel was built in 1985 by Westport Boat Builders for charter fishing. It has been equipped as an oceanographic research vessel capable of trawling, bottom sampling, hydrographic sampling, side scanning, limited geophysical surveying, dive operations and bird/mammal surveys. The outstanding feature is its speed, enabling rapid transit to and from work sites in and around Monterey Bay. The conversion has added an A-frame, winch, flying bridge observation platform, and a dive ladder. The cabin area can accommodate computers and other dry scientific equipment. The John H. Martin is equipped with a Seabird thermosalinograph, a Wetlabs flurometer and an underway data acquisition system.
