Coast Guard: Condition of Some Aids-to-Navigation and Domestic Icebreaking Vessels has Declined; Effect on Mission Performance Appears Mixed
Stephen L. Caldwell (au)
To facilitate the safety & efficiency of the marine transportation system, the Coast Guard (CG) maintains aids-to-navigation, such as buoys & beacons, & conducts icebreaking in the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence Seaway, & NE coast. The CG has a fleet of more than 200 vessels, ranging from buoy tenders to icebreakers. After 9/11, many of these assets took on additional responsibilities for security patrols & other homeland security duties. Many of these assets are reaching or have exceeded their design service lives. This report examined: (1) recent trends in the amount of time these assets have spent performing missions; (2) asset condition & its effect on mission performance; & (3) the actions taken by the CG to continue to achieve the missions of these assets.
