A BAHRAINI fishing dhow is the centrepiece of a US Navy training facility that teaches sailors how to board suspicious vessels believed to be smuggling contraband including weapons, drugs and even people. The dhow, which was previously a working fishing boat, is described as the “most prominent feature” of a Visit, Board, Search and Seizure (VBSS) complex at the US Navy’s base in Juffair.
