Vessel's Voyage Terminated
USCG law enforcement officers terminated the voyage of a vessel near Petersburg, after the officers found discrepancies with the vessel's survival equipment.
A law enforcement team from USCG patrol boat, Anacapa, boarded F/V Yabut, near Petersburg to conduct a safety inspection. The USCG personnel found the vessel's survival suits didn't have the required flotation belts. A review of the vessel's records showed the same discrepancy was noted in February, during a courtesy inspection.
USCG officials ordered the vessel's owner and operator, Anthony Muskavage of Petersburg, to moor his vessel until he obtained the flotation belts and notified the USCG.
