McFarlane delivered a lecture at MBARI titled "Genesis and metamorphosis of underwater work capability," reviewing different submersible vehicle designs and components that make them operate optimally.

Doug Au, MBARI's director of engineering development commented, "I am very pleased that we can have someone who was so involved with MBARI in the early days come back and provide a distinguished lecture. I hope we can use his insight as MBARI looks to the future and conceives our technical roadmap."
