What is Hoga's current status?
AIMM is actively working to bring Hoga to Arkansas.
The biggest obstacle is simply the lack of suitable U.S.-Flag Tugs and Float-On/Float-Off (FLO/FLO) Barges. The Navy's standards require that Hoga be carried as cargo aboard a FLO/FLO barge, rather than being towed (as Razorback was).
We have a conference call with the Navy's Ship Donation Program Office every week. The Navy is actively assisting AIMM in locating a suitable Tug and Barge for movement of Hoga.
As soon as a contract is signed for Hoga's movement, AIMM will notify everyoneAIMM is looking forward to bringing Hoga to central Arkansas.
