    YP-702 271k Crew members aboard YP-702 make preparations to get the boat underway at Naval Air Station Pensacola, FL., 21 March 2005, prior to making the transit to Annapolis, MD., to join the fleet of fellow yard-patrol boats at the Naval Academy. YP-702, along with YP-696, will be used to help train future generations of midshipmen in basic seamanship, boat handling and navigation. Officer candidates on board NAS Pensacola, who once used the yard patrol boats for training, will now be using simulators to learn basic boat handling techniques.
