r/v knorr refit

Two halves make a larger whole

A R/V Knorr refit from 1989-1991 included lengthening the vessel by 33 feet (10 meters) to 279 feet (85 meters). The ship was cut in half at McDermott Shipyard in Amelia, Louisiana, to accommodate installation of a new propulsion system and new construction that would give it greater range, allow a larger science party, and provide more deck and lab space.
