This view shows the inner bottom of R/V Taani in the upper left corner under construction. The aft skeg or keel is shown lower left. The "Bulbous Bow" is shown in upper right. The aft skeg of the RV Resolution is behind the Bulbous Bow. The inner bottoms are built upside down, and then "rolled upright" for blasting, painting and outfit.

The first RCRV, RV Taani, now under construction, is expected to launch in winter 2020 and will be operated by OSU on the West Coast as part of the University-Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS). The second RCRV, RV Resolution, will start construction in summer 2019, is expected to launch in spring 2021 and will be operated by the University of Rhode Island, as part of the East Coast Oceanographic Consortium (ECOC). The third RCRV, whose operating institution has yet to be selected, will start construction in late 2019, and will launch in fall of 2021.
