Progress on the building of AGOR 28, oceanographic research vessel Sally Ride. Work continues on initial outfitting lists for Sally Ride and NS5 Hierarchy. No additional acoustic tiles have been removed this reporting period. DCI has no plans to remove any more per USCG. No indication as to what sound treatment will be placed in the engine room bilge or on the winch room deck. Delta-DT has been mentioned as an alternative but at this late stage, it will be difficult to apply and seal in the bilge area. Of note, USCG has instructed to Washington State Ferries to remove MLV from two of their vessels within three years or at their next docking. These are passenger vessels so hopefully RVs and OSVs will not be next. Flushing and pressure testing of Rides deck machinery hydraulic piping. has been completed. Siemens was on board to begin the tuning and commissioning of Rides propulsors.
