Montegnegro Navy Training in Casco Bay, Maine

"PORTLAND - The view from the Eastern Promenade this week more closely resembles a scene from a James Bond movie than a Maine harbor.


Two patrol boats can be seen racing after two smaller boats, sirens blaring and blue lights flashing, while a 46-foot platform boat floats farther off in Casco Bay. There is a lot of splashing. The pleasure boats and ferries passing by appear to be barely moving.

The waters between East End Beach and Mackworth Island near Pomeroy Rock have been turned into a high-speed training ground for the Montenegro navy and marine police, with Mainers teaching the Montenegrins special maneuvers used to secure a coastal area."
