Another ship sighting: Thomas G. Thompson off West Seattle

The cruise ships we mentioned earlier weren’t the only sizable vessels off West Seattle today. Thanks to Chaucer Wells Photography for sharing the top photo with first word of the research vessel Thomas G. Thompson off Me-Kwa-Mooks this afternoon. (update) Tweets indicate the 274-foot TGT was on a student research cruise; it’s operated by the University of Washington School of Oceanography and has been involved in headline-making deep-sea-volcano research, among other things. Brian Baum sent a photo too:

Three years ago, we mentioned the TGT’s presence off West Seattle on a deployment for the PRISM project. Thanks for the photos and sightings! ( any time)

    Looks like the TGT needs some TLC.

    Awesome photos!! I was on the TGT a couple years back. They seem to take good care of it…at least on the inside.

    I used to work on the Thompson about ten years ago. She’s a good ship.

Sorry, comment time is over.
