RV Cirolana was a research vessel used by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science. She was built in 1969, by Ferguson Shipbuilders, and delivered in 1970. She was placed out of service in approximately 2003 and replaced by RV Cefas Endeavour. The Chief Engineer of the ship was Colin Hall OBE, who was serving on the ship during most of its life, from construction in Glasgow until 1995, when he retired to be a port engineer. In 1999, and again in 2000, she rediscovered a post-medieval wreck at 51.474930N, 5.200480W. The wreck was first reported in July 1945, and is 84m long.

  • RV Cirolana was a research vessel used by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science. She was built in 1969, by Ferguson Shipbuilders, and delivered in 1970. She was placed out of service in approximately 2003 and replaced by RV Cefas Endeavour. The Chief Engineer of the ship was Colin Hall OBE, who was serving on the ship during most of its life, from construction in Glasgow until 1995, when he retired to be a port engineer. There were ongoing issues with Cirolana's impellers being fouled by floating netting, which would then require that the ship navigate back to a safe harbour on bow thrusters alone, followed by the hire of professional divers to remove the obstruction. In 1999, and again in 2000, she rediscovered a post-medieval wreck at 51.474930N, 5.200480W. The wreck was first reported in July 1945, and is 84m long. (en)
