Deck Equipment

Deck Equipment Layout

The Miller Freeman deck layout offers port and starboard quarterdeck oceanographic winch capability with dedicated A-frames; stern port and starboard oceanographic winch capability; and stern heavy trawl capability, through the large stern Gantry. A ramp can be inserted over the trawlway facilitating mooring deployment and recovery. The four oceanographic winch configuration, plus trawling, enables multiple operations on station with minimal lost time for gear changes.
