Newest response boat in action

After months of training, the crew of Coast Guard Station Wrightsville Beach, N.C., finished qualifying on their 45-foot Response Boat – Medium, the 126th of 170 response boats being delivered to the service. The 45-foot Response Boat – Medium replaces the 41-foot Utility Boat, which has been the Coast Guard’s workhorse of the fleet for more than 25 years.
