US Coast Guard Station Michigan City, Ind. takes delivery of new 45-foot Response Boat-Medium, built by Marinette Marine, of Manitowoc, Wis.

The RB-M can respond faster than previous boats of similar size with a top speed in excess of 40 knots and has advanced search capability with an installed forward-looking infrared search technology. Additionally, with twin jet propulsion, the vessel is able to respond in shallower water.

The boat has a deep-V, double-chine hull, which provides a balance of performance and stability. The vessel is also self-righting. If it capsizes in rough seas, the boat is designed to right itself.

It can handle heavy seas and waves up to 12 feet and carry up to 24 people.

The RB-M is being added to Station Michigan City’s current craft complement, consisting of one 47- foot Motor Life Boat and one 25-foot Response Boat-Small.
