Coast Guard Trained on Hull, Engine Repair

Wednesday, August 23, 2006
As part of the ongoing cooperation between the Governments of Yemen and the United States, a team of technicians from the U.S. Coast Guard will visit Yemen’s Coast Guard to train trainers in nautical skills related to engine and fiberglass hull repair, according to a press release. As part of the training, the Yemen Coast Guard will make an inventory of all spare parts to ensure that an adequate supply is on hand for any future requirements of the fleet. Col Frank Molinari, chief of the US Office of Military Cooperation located at the US Embassy, noted that the current training in engine and hull repair will increase the operational readiness of the Yemeni Coast Guard fleet, and provide them with the capacity to conduct independent training for future Coast Guard engineers.
