Toni Moate and Dr Brian Griffiths on 936 ABC Hobart!

Yesterday was abuzz with media interviews and lots of people braving the windy and wet weather in Hobart, to come down to the waterfront and see the arrival of Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel Investigator.

One of the interviews Toni Moate and Dr Brian Griffiths did was with Ryk Goddard on 936 ABC Hobart on the Breakfast Show.

This morning a couple of small CSIRO vessels filled with excited Marine National Facility staff, including Executive Director Toni Moate and the Technical Team’s Brian Griffiths, ventured out to meet Investigator as it came up the Derwent into Hobart.

The weather couldn’t make up it’s mind but blessed us with a rainbow in the end.

Here’s how it went down:

The weather wasn’t too kind to us this morning for the arrival of Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel, but that didn’t stop us all heading out on launches or onto the wharf to watch as Investigator pulled alongside for the first time, into its home port of Hobart.
