Increased Inventory Availability T his is the end of another year of PVA presence at the Coast Guard’s Marine Inspector Course (MIC) in Yorktown, VA. Of course it is neither the calendar nor nec- essarily an anniversary of our presence there. The Coast Guard training year is based on the fiscal year that begins on October 1. Currently there have been five courses each year and we expect that pace to continue. We are an integral part of the course bringing understanding about PVA and the small passenger vessel industry generally to the class that has just studied Subchapter T and related policies and procedures and will leave with their small passenger vessel and barge inspection qualifications. The students will have had time on board the small passenger vessel Yorktown, a former operating small passenger vessel now a hands-on teaching aid. The goal is to reinforce the classroom lessons and test their ability to apply them. As PVA, we have a chance to bring to life the fleet that the inspectors will soon meet at their respective duty stations. The fleet is broad and has many distinguishing characteristics in addition to the particular mix of vessels that serves the public in their port and Sector. PVA with its membership of family, corporate and government ownership operating vessels of wood, compos- ites, steel and aluminum in the ferry, dinner cruise, excursion, eco-cruise, water taxi or other customer services are a good representation of what they will see in their careers. To do that, PVA brings two to four members to each class to describe their personal back- ground, their duties and a description of their fleet. Each is unique in back- ground and span of authority. Each has had or has front-line contact with the Coast Guard marine inspectors. I tell the marine inspectors to listen closely to how the person came to be in the PVA at Yorktown
