HMAS Success Helps Local Cargo Dhow in Middle East

Australian Navy’s HMAS Success and her boarding team came to the rescue of a local cargo dhow in the Middle East on 10 February after responding to a distress call and finding the vessel taking on water.

Technical experts amongst the boarding party determined that a hull leak was flooding the dhow’s bilge; but they could not get to the source of the leak.

Success’ Clearance Divers carried out emergency repairs to the dhow’s hull below the waterline.
