Understanding and monitoring the health of the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers is critical to guiding its restoration. To help move restoration efforts forward and more effectively, UMCES teamed up with marine architect Roger Long, Hike Metal and E.Y.E. Marine Consultants to construct a new state of the art research vessel specifically designed for the Chesapeake Bay. The 81-foot vessel has just finished construction at Hike Metal and was christened in Annapolis, Maryland on November 15, 2008.
