PACIFIC OCEAN – How do you launch a small boat out the stern of a ship? In this video the Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf deploys and recovers the Long Range Interceptor (LRI), one of the three small boats carried onboard the Bertholf.

Bertholf, homeported in Alameda, Calif., is the flagship of the Coast Guard’s first new class of large cutters in 25 years.
