Comments:

R5002 Storm is used to support the science missions, dive operations, and multi-beam/side scan for the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. It is a former Coast Guard Patrol vessel and was also used as a Training Vessel for the US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY.  The vessel was transited from New York Harbor to the Great Lakes in the fall of 2009.  After undergoing a major overhaul at GLERL's Lake Michigan Field Station during the winter of 2010, Storm was transferred to Alpena, MI in the spring of 2010.  The vessel was also retrofitted with a moon pool to house survey sonar heads.  Additionally, the vessel carries a Klein 3000 side scan sonar, T-count instrumented sheave and survey grade Trimble DPGS positioning system.  The Storm has limited overnight accommodations for up to 4 personnel.
