The municipality of LIloy in Zamboanga del Norte has committed to adopt two boats of the Regional Maritime Unit under the “Adopt a Boat of RMU-9” project.

Zamboanga del Norte Maritime Station Chief SPO4 Allan Pestañas led officials last Friday in the ocular inspection of the Catamaran boats, docked at a finger wharf in Taluksangay, Zamboanga city.

Under the project, the Liloy local government will shoulder the acquisition of the new engines of the Catamaran two-hull speedboats to replace the previous engines which have been retired after being used for the past three decades.

The Liloy government will also shoulder repair of the two boats.

RMU-9 Chief Supt Pedro Soliba thanked Liloy Mayor Felixberto Bolando for the municipality’s commitment to adopt the two vessels.

Soliba also thanked Dapitan Mayor Rosalina Jalosjos for the latter’s commitment to adopt another boat under the program.

The boats will be utilized by Maritime Station troopers in Zamboanga del Norte for seaborne operations.  (Allen Abastillas)
