Strapped In

April 11, 2016

WHOI senior mechanic Doug Handy checks the straps on the newly upgraded remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason prior to moving the vehicle to the Iselin Marine Facility for dock trials. Safety is always on the mind of Handy, who oversees activities on the dock. This can mean running heavy-lift equipment, including cranes and fork trucks; helping coordinate the fueling, loading and unloading of vessels; and conducting specialized pier-side preparation and transport of anything from large submersibles to dead whales.
