The 49-metre vessel served mainly in Australian waters surveying harbours, anchorages and new waterways. She also undertook several missions deeper into the Pacific and around New Guinean waters until she was decommissioned in 1998. Passing into civilian ownership, Plan B underwent several transformations over the years, none more so than in 2005 to 2007, when her current owner took her to Atlantic Drydock in the US and she began to take shape as the vessel we know her as today. Here she is pictured departing Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. For a closer look on board, click here.
