ALCA i is one extraordinary vessel. The vessel was
designed and built to serve as an oceanographic laboratory for the
builder's (also owner and operator) research in sub-arctic waters. The
vessel has been extremely well built and is very well suited to its
intended purpose. This is the 9th vessel the owner has owned
and operated for his marine research, and the attention to design and
detail is the culmination of many years of knowledge and experience
(every system has a backup). In addition to being built in accordance
with the standards of ABYC, NFP A and applicable USCG requirements for
recreational vessels, certain details of construction and equipment
installations (for example fuel tanks and watertight bulkheads) have
been carried out in conformance with USCG "T Boat"
requirements, as covered in 46USC Part 175 and subsequently, to
enhance possible future use of the vessel as a Coast Guard inspected
small passenger vessel, or could easily be converted as a private
Motorsailer with a three cabin, two head layout. NOTE: WOODEN
