Upscale parking spot

At a pier between an immense cruise ship and a luxury yacht at the "Yacht Haven Grande" yacht club in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, R/V Oceanus was "a little...different...from our neighbors," said WHOI postdoc Anthony Kirincich, part of the onboard research group. Loaded with gear, winches, cable—and scientists—WHOI's sturdy working research ship enjoyed refined surroundings. The November 2008 stopover was near the end of a long cruise that included two transits across the Atlantic, the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, before heading home to Woods Hole.
