USS Frank Cable Arrives Hawaii

By USS Frank Cable Public Affairs | Jan. 3, 2018

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii -- The submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40) arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, Jan. 2.

Frank Cable is currently in route to its homeport at Naval Base Guam, following more than eight months in a scheduled dry-dock phase maintenance availability (DPMA) in Portland, Oregon.

Frank Cable departed from Guam, March 7 for DPMA where it went through a main reduction gear foundation repair and shafting, a collection holding tank replacement and received more than 600,000 pounds of renewed steel to enhance survivability and watertight resistance.

"The crew is excited to visit Hawaii after a successful Dry-dock Phase Maintenance Availability in Portland, Oregon," said Capt. Jeff Farah, commanding officer, Frank Cable. "They have worked incredibly hard over the past nine months and I am extremely proud of each and every one of them."

While this is a working port, said Farah. "We are all looking forward to enjoying all that Hawaii has to offer before continuing home to our families and friends in Guam."

Under the two-tender concept, the crews of USS Frank Cable and USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) work together to repair, re-supply and re-arm submarines and surface vessels forward deployed to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
