DF-323 (Australian, fiberglass)
« on: January 27, 2009, 04:27:32 PM »

Taken this year 2007.
My book says this is a de Havilland class patrol craft constructed in Sydney, Australia between 1974-1975. 16.5-tons; 46-footer; Fiberglass-hulled.  However, the pennant number is not one of the five listed -- DF321, 326, 328, 330, 331.  These craft is contemporary of the Swift MkIII class.

The naming convention for this boat before was PCF and now its DF. The PCFs are previously assigned with the Assault Craft Force but now have been transferred to the PCG.

So this boat is called as PCF-323 or DF-323.

Navy rescues 9 people at sea
Wednesday, September 23, 2009

TROOPS from the Philippine Navy aboard Diesel Fast Craft-323 (DF-323) have rescued nine passengers of a ferry that capsized off Cotabato City, a Navy official said Wednesday.

Naval Task Group 73 chief Commander Elpidio Francisco reported to Flag Office-In-Command (FOIC) Vice-Admiral Ferdinand Golez that the passengers of the capsized ferry were rescued around 11 p.m. Tuesday in the vicinity of Lubong Point, Cotabato City.

The nine rescued passengers were among the 20 people aboard F/B Pamela 7 that capsized due to big waves around 2 p.m. Monday while traveling for Kalamansig, Sultan Kudarat from Cotabato City.

However, the incident was not reported to the concerned government agencies like the Navy or the Philippine Coastguard (PCG).

The other 11 passengers were rescued earlier by a motor boat and were brought to Cotabato City.

The nine who were rescued Tuesday by the Navy -- seven males, a female, and a child -- were ferried by the Navy to Kalamansig town.

Francisco said his personnel was informed about the incident by people aboard a motor boat that met them while they were traveling around noontime Tuesday to Palembang east of Kalamansig town in Sultan Kudarat.

Navy information officer Lieutenant Colonel Edgard Arevalo said the Navy’s immediate response which saved lives anew manifests its multi-faceted role that includes non-combat missions, such as search and rescue operations during times of emergencies and natural calamities. (Bong Garcia)
