Framed through Pampas Grass, the Thompson
gets ready for a long trip

On a hazy and flat calm sea the 'THOMAS G. THOMPSON' floated off Shoreline Saltwater Park Thursday. She is a survey and research vessel built in 1991 and carries a US flag. She is 83.26 meters in length and 16 meters in beam.

After a trip to B.C. she has been performing sea trials on the Shoreline Sea in preparation for a trip to New Zealand.
