Investigator – Home Port, Hobart

Standard

Wow, what a day we had, joining hundreds of other folk wharf side to see Investigator commissioned as the new Marine National Research Facility ship under the auspices of the CSIRO, based in Hobart. She will be dedicated to marine research throughout Australia’s vast ocean territories.

We were thrilled to go aboard for a Ship’s Tour – Sarah was brilliant in explaining and proudly showing the ship’s wonders, and Brendan gave us a great insight into her drivability up on the bridge. Big hugs to Tara – you made our day.
