Christening of R/V Tioga.

Launching Into Coastal Research

WHOI employees, benfactors, and shipyard workers gathered on March 29, 2004, for the ceremonial blessing and launch of the coastal research vessel Tioga. The name Tioga comes from the Iroquois for "swift current"; it is also a Seneca word meaning "the meeting of two rivers." Both are fitting for a boat that can cruise at more than 20 knots and can range from the Hudson River to the shores of Maine. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
