Bangor Flotilla Trains at Bangor Dock
With a folk festival in the
background, Flotilla 12 performed training missions at the Bangor
waterfront. The first topic was a refresher course on the
operation of a de-watering pump. The P6 can pump 250
gallons per minute and run for two hours on one tank of fuel -- which
can be swapped out for another tank while the pump is running. At
15,000 gallons of water per hour, the pump can mean the difference
between saving a boat in distress or losing it.
Another topic of
training for the day was towing. To stay current as boat crew
members, Auxiliarist must perform towing exercises which include side
tow and stern tow techniques.
Flotilla members review towing procedures before going on the water.
