That is a 44 foot motor life boat.

We now use 47 MLB's

The titanic was unsinkable too!

The 44's were constructed of 3/16 corten steel with 5/16 under the engine room. The engines started in gear and were actually a very forgiving craft as you could make a 44 do just about anything. Very tough boats. The aluminum 47's are running first generation DDEC's and were problematic to achieve required performance standards especially in warm water. I did not have the opportunity to run a 47 in the surf but the boat performed okay during the time I had one assigned.

The idea of the boat is to self right if something goes wrong. These boats are not rolled intentionally. The perfromance objective is to effect a succesful mission in surf conditions with minimal or no incident or impact upon the craft or crew.

Running these boats in the surf is a lot of fun but it will also get your attention real quick if you screw up.

Unless it was an Apache - the rocks would be pebbles in that case.

Almost daily off Cape Disappointment you can see 10 to 20 breaking waves, according to the USCG. The other area further north in the Georgia Strait gets pretty fun most days as well that I boat in......... Defiently care more for offshore performance over top speed!!!!!!
