BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Crewmembers at Coast Guard Station Brunswick, Ga., held a ceremony Tuesday to recognize the receipt of a new rescue boat.

Station Brunswick is the latest unit to receive the new 45-foot Response Boat-Medium. The RB-M at Station Brunswick is meant to replace one of its current assets, a 1970’s-era 41-foot Utility Boat. The RB-M is one of the Coast Guard’s newest vessels to its fleet. Some of the features of the RB-M include extended range, jet propulsion and even a self-righting capability, making the RB-M a significant upgrade to the aging UTB.
