"JAPANYON"
FRV:"Umitaka Maru"
summer 1961

I had the pleasure to spend several days on Tokyo University of Fisheries' R.V. "Umitaka Maru" (left)
the new "Umitaka", launched in 2000
As a former Naval cadet, I was impressed by the dedication and discipline aboard:

scrubbing the deck a.k.a.
"singing psalms"


time out for a swim!
or was it a class?
