Marine 6

 
 

The Lower Southampton Fire Department Bid Farewell to Marine 6 on July 22, 2013. The boat is off to a new home and we wish the new owners many years of effective use. The boat served us well for the time that it was in our inventory.

This boat is designed for moderately shallow water and is used in both dive and swift water operations. It can carry up to 5 personnel with gear when it is called into service. One of the operations that is used is to tow the departments side scan sonar when looking for objects under water instead of sending divers into the water and into possible danger. It uses an outboard motor for propulsion.
