Moose Boats delivered two M2-37 rescue/response boats to the Port Authority
of New York/New Jersey Police. The M2-37 vessels are 37.5 ft. aluminum catamarans powered by twin Cummins (CMI)
380 hp turbo diesels propelled by Hamilton HJ292 water jets. These rescue/response boats can attain a top speed of over 35 knots and are custom outfitted with 33 18-person life rafts. Each boat can deliver enough raft capacity to handle a water-based aircraft rescue mission for the largest aircraft landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport. These two boats comply with the 2004 FAA Advisory that provides guidance to airport operators in the preparation for water rescue operations.
The Port Authority
is implementing a five-year, $500 million capital plan to reinforce security systems and enhance public safety. Initiatives include cutting-edge technology to improve facility surveillance, rescue operations, perimeter security and access restrictions.
