Marine Boats & Survival Crafts

Boat handling practice and rescue operation drills for candidates are conducted in the confined and safe waters of the Naval Dockyard and Indian Navy Watermanship Training Centre (INWTC). Two 40 men capacity Totally Enclosed Motor Propelled Survival Crafts (TEMPSCs) with associated lowering/hoisting arrangements, two Fast Rescue Boats (RIBs) with powerful in board engines and steering system and a six men capacity Survival Craft with powerful OBM, enable candidates to independently handle the boats in a conducive marine environment. A standby safety boat, naval divers and swimmers are always standby to assist in any eventuality of a man over board when drills that involve rescue operations and uprighting a capsized boat are undertaken.
