“The Shana Rae operated for 25 days during the month of August, 2000, including eight continuous days of night operations and several days of 24-hour operations.  The cost effectiveness and heavy-payload capability of the Shana Rae combined with Jim’s extreme scheduling flexibility and fine seamanship contributed greatly to the success of MUSE.”
