Rosborough RF-18
I heard a story that the RF-18 came from a Sisu 18 hull. We have an open workboat at the club with the same length and beam as our RF-18 that I think someone said was an old Sisu hull that predated the RF-18. Anyone know that history?

I believe they are mistaking the history of RF-22 Seaskiff that was a Sisu design. The RF-18 was designed by Mr. Rosborough to my understanding.

Maybe it's a Rosborough then.

Nantucket. I saw your thread recently and snapped a picture as I went by last night.

Thanks for these pics, I know this is an old thread. I have former CCG 307. Looks like they were inshore rescue boats? Where did you get these pics?
Another thank you for this thread. I had found others, including about the new Levy18. I'm looking for an '80's boat and appreciate all the education I can get. One I'm considering looks like she's in your photos!
