NOAA ship Rainier

I toured a NOAA ship Friday while it was in Port in Juneau. I have to say I'm not a boat-lover, but this one was pretty interesting. The craft and crew is re-mapping Alaska's ocean floor to identify navigational hazards, ship wrecks and other oceanic unknowns. It was an interesting tour - as far as boat tours go. After I realized, I'm a land lubber and glad to be one.
The following are the highlights:
