MARAD advises Mahaicony boat operators

A team of officers from the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD), and Regional Chairman, Region 5, Bindrabhan Bisnauth, visited the Mahaicony Creek area yesterday. A release from MARAD said that they were there to advise boat operators on the importance of having their vessels inspected and certified, and for the operators themselves to be examined and certified.

The release said that the visit was initiated by Robeson Benn, Minister of Public Works after he received reports about the allegedly poor condition of boats and also poor operational practices in the area. This MARAD photo shows MARAD officers speaking to the boat operators.
