My Crab Traps are Safe, The Navy is Here

Put the traps down in Buccaneer Bay this afternoon.  Always a little nervous. Never know if there are poachers out there.   My fears were relieved when the Navy responded to my request and delivered four Orca Class cruisers to the Bay for “trap surveillance”.

OK. Probably not there for my traps.  It was kind of cool to see four of these 108 ft surveillance and training cruisers raft up for the evening. Hmm.  Maybe a party.  62 “Moose” is the newest of these cruisers commissioned in 2008. Rafting up along side 61 “Cougar” and soon to be joined by 55″Orca” and 58 “Renard”.
