On January 13, 2017, Cabras Marine Corporation (CMC) dry docked the USCG Cutter Assateague. This is the second USCG vessel federally awarded to CMC for ship repair overhaul in the last 12 months. Currently the USCG Assateague operates in the Coast Guard 14th District and reports to Sector Guam. Assateague supports multi-mission operations throughout Sector Guam’s vast area of responsibility, which includes the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zones surrounding Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and an international SAR area that includes the Republic of Palau and the Federated States of Micronesia, conducting search and rescue response missions, and ports, waterways and coastal security operations.
CMC utilized its 1000T Floating Dry Dock, AFDL-21 to accommodate the docking of Cutter Assateague. CMC has invested in refurbishing and overhauling the AFDL-21, a former U.S. Navy Floating Dry Dock, to better serve ship repair needs of the military and commercial enterprises. The AFDL-21 received an All Boats Repair (ABR) accreditation from Military Sealift Command and is located at the CMC Ship Repair Facility in the Commercial Port of Guam F2 Pier. CMC professional workforce in shore side services, preservation, structural, mechanical, electrical, machining and ground transportation will carry out overhaul requirements for the 60 day period of performance. CMC Management and Quality Control understands the importance of USCG mission and will deliver a quality overhaul within the POP.
