Research Vessel,Rapuhia
Did a short time on this vessel in 1989, it was managed by Union Company NZ ,the vessel was very interesting in many ways, diving well in the centre of ship, unusual fuel control system by flooding tanks with salt water which created a interface,this was to keep stability .
I think it started out as a weather ship,but I could be wrong .Anyone know its history?
