Boat Ordered & Under Construction

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

After a huge number of hours we have selected a boat. Three SAR members went down to the manufacturers and talked about possible alterations and extras that would make it safe and solid for searchers and subject. We think we have come up with the best!

It is a ThunderJet Maxim Classic. For more information, check out the ThunderJet website: http://www.thunderjet.com/maximclassic/index.html. It will be painted in the color yellow with the canopy blue. We had it extended two feet to 25 ft. We have gone with the HO motor and many other features to make it a solid rescue boat that can handle as many as three stretchers.

We expect it to arrive in mid-October. Hopefully earlier!
