The OCEARCH Crew was honored with a visit from the US Coast Guard this afternoon. They let the crew know they are here to do anything they can to help facilitate a safe OCEARCH mission. A pretty impressive surprise awaited Chief Engineer Denny Wagner on board the US Coast Guard’s vessel. After inviting him on board, he was stoked to find out they employ a Caterpillar Marine Power Engine just like the OCEARCH.

US Coast Guard’s SAFEboat and OCEARCH’s SAFEboat are both are impervious to shark bites and bullets.
