Somalia              

The UKMTO have reported that a dhow, currently located 2.5nm Northwest of Bolimoog, is potentially being prepared to be used as a mother vessel for piracy acts. The dhow is described as having a blue and white wheelhouse, with a brown wooden superstructure and is an Iranian style fishing vessel. All vessels in the area are advised to exercise extreme caution and immediately report any suspicious activity.

 

Vessels within a 100 nautical mile radius should increase their anti-piracy deterrents in line with Best Management Practices 4. This should include increased twenty four hour anti-piracy watch keeping and radar monitoring. Vessel hardening should be checked and where appropriate bolstered.
