The station received a 45-foot RB-M to replace the aging and outdated 41-foot Utility Boat. They also received a new 29-foot RB-S II that will be replacing the station’s 25-foot RB-S I. 

The 45-foot RB-M boasts an improved design, new ergonomics, and enhanced safety features, making boat crews more effective in performing their multiple missions.
