The Coast Guard Channel

Thursday, 24 April 2008
I recently tuned into the US Coast Guard Channel. There you will find lots of video resources that helps to show what goes on within the busy world of the US Coast Guard.

One quick video posted below gives a great demonstration of their new 47' MLB. This boat is specifically designed for rescue in large surf.

The official Coast Guard website describes them as:

The 47' motor lifeboat is designed as a first response rescue resource in high seas, surf & heavy weather environments. They are built to withstand the most severe conditions at sea and are capable of effecting a rescue at sea even under the most difficult circumstances. They are self-bailing, self-righting, almost unsinkable, and have a long cruising radius for their size. It is the replacement for the aging 44' MLB fleet.
