Response boats-medium prove worth across the country

Response boat-medium

The Coast Guard produced and delivered 174 response boats-medium, or RB-Ms, to 105 stations across 30 states and territories to replace its 41-foot utility boats, which were retired in 2014. Since the first response boat was delivered in 2008, coxswains around the country and their commanders have consistently lauded the response boat’s capabilities to perform the full spectrum of Coast Guard response boat missions.

The weekend is here as we showcase Coast Guard missions in a week in the life of the Coast Guard. Check out these photos to see everything from small boat operations in Ketchikan, Alaska, to servicemembers commemorating 222 years of America’s Coast Guard. From July 30 to August 5, Coast Guard men and women captured a week in the life of the Coast Guard to highlight the missions we perform on a daily basis. Stay with us throughout the week as we share a day-by-day snapshot of life in the Coast Guard.
