General Comments:

The Samudera (known as K.M. Samudera which probably stand for Kapal Mesin Samudera and may be translated by Motor Vessel Samudera) was still active during 1984-1985, when she participated in the Indonesian-Dutch Snellius-II expedition.

Samudera build and IMO confirmed in Miramar

Decommissioned date is uncertain. Miramar says "stricken 1974". NOAA holds data associated with "Samudera" from 1956-1983.
