This is why the Coast Guard has a saying that "you have to go out, but, you don't have to come back"!
We had one of these 44' MLBs (Harbour Lights produced one)in New Smyrna Beach because of the water coming over the entrance bar to the station. I could not tell if the boat in the pictures was the 44' MLB or a newer replacement for the older 44'. While the water was never like that in the pictures it certainly did get rough. Normal training for operating these boat is in Oregon.
