BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Coast Guard Station Brunswick is celebrating the arrival of a new response boat Tuesday.

The January 28th ceremony will recognize the arrival of the new 45-foot Response Boat-Medium which will replace the 1970's 41-foot Utility Boat that is currently being used.

The RB-M includes state-of-the-art marine technology which provides better control and twin jet propulsion.

More updates to the new RB-M include a faster engine and the ability to operate in severe conditions, enabling the Coast Guard to respond to missions more effectively between the South Carolina and Georgia coasts.
