ARABIAN GULF (March 30, 2011) Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class Shane Maurin paints a railing on the fantail of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). The repainting is part of a regular regimen of preservation maintenance the fantail requires because of its high traffic and exposure to saltwater spray. Carl Vinson and Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 17 are conducting maritime security operations and close-air support missions in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
