UPDATE FROM THE AUSTRALIAN BUILT HIGH SPEED SHIP IN THE US DISASTER AREA:
The following message was received today from the Commanding Officer of US Navy Vessel SWIFT, the shallow draft High Speed Catamaran built by Incat in Tasmania:
“SWIFT is once again involved with disaster relief efforts, but this time here in the US.
We are currently serving as a high speed connector and have provided the local Commander with high speed lift between Ingleside, Texas and the Mississippi Delta. We are now engaged in shuttling cargo from Pensacola, Florida to the large supply ships (they cannot access the port) for distro to the rest of the naval task force in the area.”
“Fast and Versatile!”
