Coral Harbour Base, (RBDF)- HMBS Rolly Gray damaged a set of propellers after departing Coral Harbour on routine patrol shortly after 7 a.m. Sumday morning. The exact cause of the incident is being investigated. 

Out of the nine Damen-built patrol craft, seven are operational with one being prepared for routine drydocking. 

Rolly Gray had damaged her propellers earlier this year resulting in replacement. This process took approximately one week to complete prior to Rolly Gray resuming patrol.

The hull of a 100-foot patrol craft that was breached by a captured Dominican poaching vessel was also recently repaired.
