Wonder if at some point the town of Plymouth will retire this and it gets sold off (cheap)
I believe it's a 34 Calvin Beal and is Yanmar powered.
In my opinion, this is the perfect boat.
Just needs a few sliding doors cut into the house (port & stb), loose the swim platform, and a bunch of swivel rod holders installed all 360 degrees around.
That is unreal....these guys need these boats like they need a hole in the head...just a BIG WASTE OF TAX PAYERS MONEYWas talking to the assistant harbor master
Was told they have another big inflatable with triple outboards and has a v8 inboard to just run a pump at a price tag over $700K
Until there's a boat going down a mile or two offshore and someone needs to get there quick to pump her out and avoid creating a navigational hazard that will cost a bunch more taxpayer $$$ to clear.
As advocates for the safety of our coastal waterways, I'd think we'd be pleased that tax money is being allocated for assets that allow for harbormasters to do their jobs.
Aren't tax payers dollars already being spent for the coast guard to do that job?
Where I'm from, there's about 40 statute miles between CG stations. About a dozen harbors in between. I hope that if somebody in the middle is in a crisis situation (coastal, not offshore) that they don't have to wait 40 mins to an hour for the CG to steam over and perform their duties.
