Pictured here with RTC's Questuary, the smaller vessel will be used for field research requiring a shallow-draft vessel and shelter for sensitive electronic equipment. It was donated by the family of the late Dr. William Atchley who served on RTC's board of directors. RTC, San Francisco State University's marine and estuarine research facility located on San Francisco Bay, celebrates 30 years of science, education and stewardship this year.
