The sister vessels R/V Tioga and R/V Gulf Challenger (UNH) at the WHOI pier.

Reunion of Two Coastal Sisters

The coastal research vessels Tioga (left) and Gulf Challenger enjoyed a June 2007 reunion at the WHOI pier. Operated by the University of New Hampshire, Gulf Challenger was designed and built by the same team (Roger Long Marine Architecture and Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding) that built Tioga. The boats were designed as speedy but sturdy workshorses for marine research on the continental shelf from Maine to the Hudson River.
