Coast Guard Response Boat USCGC Kimball (WMSL-756) at Key West 6 months ago 01:46
Seattle - The Response Boat Medium successfully completes a self-righting test. This new boat, which was delivered to the Coast Guard March 31, is a multi-mission capable boat expected to operate in coastal zones which include inshore and inland waterways and open ocean out to 50 nautical miles, but will routinely operate in shallow water. As an operational Coast Guard asset, it will rapidly respond to any Coast Guard mission on very short notice and will conduct planned patrols and training. It will replace the 41-foot utility boat which has been the workhorse of Coast Guard coastal stations for more than 25 years.
