The Portland District US Army Corp of Engineers recently received a 32 x 10 ft Commander with a survey package add-on. The survey package includes a Furano navigation lot made up of radar, chart plotter, GPS, autopilot, and heading sensor. Located in Coos Bay, OR, the vessel will be used to operate off and near shore with VHF radios.
The Survey station accommodates two monitors with an HD monitor at the helm. Included are ac and DC power outlets for a 3,000-watt AC pure sine wave interior with mitigating shock seating. The exterior is equipped with a slide and swivel server rack, a galley for hot and fresh water, and a black water holding tank. A single beam through hull transducer sits on the bottom of the craft while a Universal Survey Mount sits on the gunwale for over-the-side sonar deployment. Overall, this fully loaded commander series Workskiff is ready for any and all the Portland District US Army Corp of Engineers’ survey needs.
