Coast Guard station receives new asset

A Coast Guard 45-foot Medium Response Boat is shown moored at Coast Guard Station Portsmouth, Va., following it's delivery to the station, Jan. 10, 2013. The new RB-M is scheduled to replace the unit's 41-foot Utility Boat and is part of the service's plan to standardize and revitalize its shore-based boat fleet.

  • JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A forward look at the bridge of the 45-foot Response Boat-Medium, the newest response asset at Coast Guard Station Mayport, Fla. Replacing the Coast Guard's 41-foot Utility Boats (UTB), the 45-foot RB-M's improved design, new ergonomics, and enhanced safety features will make Station Mayport boatcrews more effective in performing their multiple missions.

  • Crew members of Coast Guard Station Port Aransas, Texas, conduct training on the station's new 45-foot response boat-medium Jan. 27, 2009. The RB-M, which will eventually replace the Coast Guard's aging fleet of 41-foot utility boats, is a self-righting, 45-foot aluminum boat with twin diesel engines and water jet propulsion. It includes multiple navigation displays, a wireless crew communication system, an infrared camera, shock mitigating seating, and air conditioning. The RB-M also provides additional safety for the crew. Unlike the 41-foot utility boat, the RB-M has the ability to self-right in the event of a capsize. This feature allows the RB-M to operate in rougher sea conditions. (U.S. Coast Guard photo/ Petty Officer Patrick D. Kelley)
