Can't sink but you can roll them!!!!

Just ordered my expo stickers!!!
All boats can sink! The number of compartments / bilge pumps make it impracticle for this design.

What was the name of that other single walled , multi compartment, unsinkable boat???:snorkel:

In my 21 yrs as a SAR Lifeboatman I have never seen a design that is affected as much by icing as the 47' MLBs. In fact in our area (Eastern Canada) we are forbidden to operate them in icing conditions!

Like every design, they have thier strenghs, and weeknesses

I ve got two of those up her in New Hampsire at station Portsmouth Harbor
If your collecting them, you can take the one I'm on!!

Took a pounding again Saturday night. Two tuna boats lost their wheelhouse windows. 38 NM away

We pounded head to it 3 hrs. Winds 35-45 kts, sea state 4 -5 m (yep 12-16ft)!!:snorkel:
The seas broke lights that are attached to the life rings, tore rescue bags lines apart, just another night in paradice!!:Wow1:

Rendez-vous'd up with them, then escorted back home at 9 Kts

The 47's are like going to sea in a tumble dryer!!

Thank G-D for the US Coast Guard (and Air Force Pararescue)! Both have saved my butt.....

The Gordon Reid... one Canada's floating FRC platforms! We are hoping that with the arrival of the Mid Shore Patrol boats, we may get one of the Arun class Lifeboats...

Now that's a Lifeboat!!
