In 1985, Knorr was the ship on the scene when the wreck of Titanic was discovered. To search for the wreck, the ship used a long wire to tow Argo, a sled equipped with cameras, just above the seafloor.
WHOI Archives

Knorr crew affectionately called themselves Knorrons. Many stayed aboard for decades, becoming a tight-knit group. They worked closely with scientists, and had a knack for overcoming challenges. On a Labrador Sea cruise in the winter of 1997, all hands had to break dangerous ice buildup from the bow, including then-Captain A.D. Colburn, swinging a mallet.
