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
Sold about 2017 to Madeline Marine Inc, Verplanck NY
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!|
