Thanks, David. You seem to have incredible resources, or incredible memory. Thank you for your information.

Registered name with USCG appears to be "R/V PELICAN".

There's a good description from when she took that name with the Virginia Institute of Marine Science at
http://web.vims.edu/admin/vessels/policies_forms/PelicanOperationsManual.pdf
Sold about 2017 to Madeline Marine Inc, Verplanck NY
https://www.madelinemarine.com/the-pelican/
but may have been sold again as USCG doesn't list a current owner.

She's the PELICAN (U. S. Official Number 1169531) and originally the Navy "Mike-8" landing craft 74CM6746. She was later given to the Maritime Administration Reserve Fleet at James River VA as a workboat named PG 231.

Almost certainly a LCM-8 landing craft (Army or Navy) modified after disposal sale with a rather robust (for such a relatively small craft) superstructure.

Like an optical illusion! The bridge structure appears aligned to a different axis than the hull!
