And now they can do so a only slightly bit faster.

Station Cape Disappointment in February received two new 29-foot, Freedom-Form Response Boat-Small vessels — as they’re known in the Coast Guard’s lexicon — to substitute their 10-year-old Defender-class predecessors.

“Its key factor in search and rescue is its speed,” said Boatswain’s Counterpart 1st Class Nicholas Palisano, one of the crew of the new response boats and their larger brethren, the 47-foot motor lifeboats, that Mantle Disappointment is known for. “It doesn’t have the equipment or the outfit of the motor lifeboat, but it can get somewhere about twice as sybaritic, which is good in the summertime.

how long would a good aluminum boat last?

i heared that they only last 7 years if they are under 10 meters (aprox 34 feet)
Is this steady?
Somebody that knows please explain. Thanks!

If well maintained, ventilated, kept dry and custom-made with anodes etc. as required there is no reason an alloy boat can't last as long as any other construction type. Alloy really does be unsuccessful very fast if ill-treated or allowed to have electric
