This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for services in which the government intends to award an order in accordance with FAR Part 13, Simplified Acquisitions Procedures. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Alaska Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Mammal Lab has a requirement for one chartered vessel to conduct both genetic studies on harbor porpoise and conduct 3-4 days of line-transect surveys for small cetaceans in the inland waterways of Southeast Alaska. During line-transect operations, scientific observers will rotate among three positions logging in all cetacean sightings, environmental conditions, and trackline information. Pre-determined tracklines will be followed and all positional information (i.e., waypoints) will be given to the vessel Captain prior to departure for entry into the ship's GPS system. General search patterns will require the vessel to operate at approximately 10 kts during these surveys. During line-transect days (total of 3-4 only), approximately 100-150 nautical miles a day may be surveyed. Additional transits may occur overnight to position research effort for the following day. During genetic studies of porpoise, the vessel may in fact remain in the same general area. Scientists will work from a skiff during this phase of the research. The vessel is required to stay in close proximity (within at least 2 miles) or follow the skiff to ensure the safety of the researchers. The vessel will be required to closely approach several species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises and all required permits will be provided by the Chief Scientist prior to the cruise. The contractor shall provide all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, transportation, food and services necessary to perform the requirements of the solicitation. The minimum vessel general requirements for this charter consist of the following: Vessel and crew requirements under this charter shall be as follows: 1. Minimum crew of vessel shall consist of captain, engineer-mate, cook-mate and first mate or deck-hand. The captain must have a minimum of five years' experience as a master of a vessel comparable in size to the vessel selected; preference will be given to captains with experience operating in the inland waterways of Southeastern Alaska and especially with experience in marine mammal research. The engineer-mate must be qualified for independently taking over operations of the vessel in the event the captain is absent or becomes incapacitated. The cook-mate will be experienced in preparing meals for ten or more people. The first mate should be experienced in various activities in the deck and in launching and retrieving skiffs/inflatable boats. If a change in crew members is anticipated during the course of the charter, all crew personnel must be listed as part of the original proposal. Replacement crew must have similar qualifications as the original crew. 2. Minimum overall length of vessel of 90 feet, and maximum draft of 12 feet. 3. Minimum cruising speed of 9 to 10 knots. 4. An outside area suitable for observational work at a height above the water line of at least 15 feet. This area must be in close proximity to the wheelhouse and on the forward part of the vessel (aft-house vessels are not suitable). 5. Room for a scientific computer station inside the wheelhouse. Space is required for a laptop computer (provided by the scientific party) and a portable GPS unit. Also required is an accessible AC outlet and the ability to route a GPS antenna to the computer station. Occasionally observational work will be conducted inside the wheelhouse. Ideally the station would be situated to allow observations forward of the vessel while working at the computer station. It is important that conditions inside the wheelhouse permit observers to easily view waters directly in front of and abeam of the vessel. 6. Vessel shall be equipped with appropriate modern electronic navigational and communication equipment, including but not limited to: two all-weather radars (36 mile minimum range), VHF radio (one or more fixed installation), synthesized 1-18 mHz SSB radio (one or more capable of communicating with AT&T High Seas Marine Operator), and GPS or Loran C navigational equipment (2 sets). A fax machine capable of obtaining weather information. All communication equipment shall be tested and tuned before the charter begins. 7. The vessel shall also have the following: a. Wheelhouse or cockpit protected from the weather. b. Capability for loading and off-loading the scientific party and a 22-foot rigid-hulled inflatable boat with outboard motor to and from the water (inflatable boat supplied by scientific party). Total weight of 3,400 pounds. Loading and off-loading of the inflatable boat shall be with a crane extendable to 10' past the side of the vessel and capable of lifting up to 2 tons. The government inflatable boat must be stored on the deck after each use and cannot be towed behind the support vessel. It is mandatory that the government provide their own skiff which is configured properly for this research project. c. A clean, flush deck area of a least 500 sq. ft. for storage and launching of inflatable boats. On deck work area(s) should be clear of running gear, equipment, and stowage. d. Seawater deck hose for cleaning. e. Potable fresh water supply adequate for vessel and personal use of up to ten people for about 14 days. If a water maker is not available then a minimum of 4,000 gallons is required. f. Washer-dryer for personal laundry. g. In addition to the inflatable boat supplied by the scientific party, a back-up skiff (minimum of 17-feet), supplied by the charter vessel, with an adequate outboard engine must be available for scientific use. 8. Accommodations for a scientific party of six which will include female scientists and possible foreign nationals. The scientific party will be accommodated separately from the crew, in at least three bunk-rooms. Suitable sanitary accommodations, including head and shower separated from the living quarters and within the ship, must be available. Hot, fresh water shower, must be provided at least every second day for each member of the scientific party. Clean mattresses, covers, and bedding must be provided by the contractor. 9. Meals must be provided by the contractor and should include three healthy and nutritionally balanced meals per day (at designated hours), one of which may be a shore/skiff lunch for the scientific party. Fresh fruits and vegetables are required. Vegetarian meals may be required for some of the scientific team members. 10.
