COAST GUARD BOAT engineered and designed for rapid
response on stormy inland or coastal waters to rescue mariners in
Boat may not have been the words on the lips of the family
members who found that they had been unknowingly swept out to sea during a
rain storm with waves at seven feet high and the wind howling about them
at 38 mph. Though Coast Guard Boat was not uttered, the
cry of their hearts was for a Coast Guard
A Coast Guard Boat at or near the scene of a
disaster when it occurs is not always possible and for that reason a Rigid Hull
Inflatable Coast Guard Boat is the solution when a rapid response is
required when disasters occur long distances from shore. In these cases the
most immediately available would be from a RHIB Coast Guard
On this occasion the Coast Guard Boat Petty
Officer said "When the will to live kicks in, human beings can do amazing
things”. In the absence of a Coast Guard Boat the women grabbed the
four and a half year old girl and a floating 2 ½-foot cooler to keep
afloat. The boat had capsized so quickly that there was no time to put on
Sadly the 89 year old mother was drowned in the
incident; she slipped from the grasp of one of the three men in the second
group. The three women and girl drifted apart from the three men who were
rescued the following morning by commercial fisherman who spotted them and
alerted a Coast Guard Boat to rescue the women
Coast Guard services are run by all nations the world over,
and even though many are an arm of the military services of the nations that
have established them, they play a very important role in taking care of all
mariners in and near their coastal waters with many records of courageous
rescues during dangerous times while at sea.
The United States Coast Guard (USCG) was Founded on 4 August
1790 by Alexander Hamilton as the Revenue Cutter Service and it lays claim to
being the United States' oldest continuous seagoing service. As of August 2009,
the Coast Guard had approximately 42,000 men and women on active duty.
The Coast Guard's duties in all countries are Maritime
Safety, Maritime Security, and Maritime Stewardship. To carry out those roles
the Coast Guard requires operating cutters or large vessels that can handle
events which involve ships carrying large numbers of people but in order to get
to the rescue scene speedily a RHIB is essential.
Historically China first used a Coast Guard Boat along the
middle reaches of the Yangtze River which flows through south central China.
Britain’s first lifeboat station in was at Formby beach, in 1776, and Canada’s
first lifeboat stations in the mid 19th century on the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts, and the Canadian side of the Great Lakes.
Modern Coast Guard Boats
Modern Coast Guard Boats have been modified by
the addition of an engine which provides the power required to get in and
out of the swell area inside the surf. They can be launched from the shore
or a ship in any weather and perform rescues further out getting to and
from a disasters faster and returning victims to a place of safety.
Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boat (RHIB) are now seen as the best
type of craft for in-shore rescues as they are less likely to be tipped over by
the wind or breakers. Unlike ordinary pleasure craft these small to medium
sized rescue craft often have a very low freeboard so that victims can be taken
aboard without lifting.
These boats are designed to operate with water inside the
boat hull and rely on flotation tanks rather than hull displacement to stay
afloat and upright. This means that the boats are designed to operate with
water inside the boat hull due to their reliance on flotation tanks.
