Commissioned project depicting a much loved coastline of the owner, who is moving away. Oil rigs and all, it is a view she deeply loves. Inside are two glass entrapment of sand and shells she sent me to include. They make a lovely noise clinking together. #juiceglass#jewelrygram#commissionedart

(Credit to John H Lienhard and NOAA). The Ferrel began life back in 1968, as an ocean going tug/supply vessel for oil rigs. Having to stand by a rig in the open ocean and give supplies is tricky when the ship is pitching and rolling so they put in a bow thruster, two propellers, and a uniquely designed keel. She was redesigned in the 1980s to become a fully fledged research vessel for the NOAA fleet. Her cruising speed was 10 knots and weighed about 500 tons. Though small, she is a very capable vessel. The person that NOAA named this ship after is of William Ferrel, a scientist studying weather patterns and currents by Newton and LaPlace. What he realized was LaPlace did not account for friction of currents and thus being more able to understand the complex system of weather. The Research ship Ferrel did serve not only as a ship of science, but also of refuge. During the 2008, Hurricane Ike, Ferrel took on civilians and went out to sea. The vessel's superb stability was safer (believe it or not) than being on the shores of Louisiana. By her later years (perhaps 2009 or so) she was laid up from NOAA to the scrap yard. However a man named Alton L Warren saved the ship until she was sold again to private interests some time before 2017. To whom it was owned is not known, but as Hurricane Maria approached Puerto Rico a few days ago as this is being posted (September 22, 2017) she sailed out with a father, mother, and two young boys. Authorities have not mentioned their names, and it is not known why they were out there. Unfortunately they were, and Ferrel capsized in a 100 knot gale which killed the father. The mother and two children managed to crawl on the keel of the upturned hull with life jackets in hand. The ship is said to have gone ashore on Puerto Rico, but was too far for them to swim, so helicopter rescue picked them up for safety. An unfortunate and tragic end, doubtless. #hurricanemaria#hurricaneike#noaa#johnhlienhard#williamferrel#researchship#ferrel#newton#laplace#1968#2008#2017#tug#oilrig#supplier#puertorico#weather#scientist#namesake#louisiana#rescueship#rescue#altonlwarren#coastguard#royalnavy#memorium#restinpeace
