I saw your "no toobs" video on Youtube - sporty! The pic below was taken mid-90s in Ireland.
We have put a lot of thought into the layout and have already found some small details we will address on the next one.
Yes the gas is for other crafts. We usually carry an extra 20gal. but the day i took the pic we had 35 on board. our internal tank is 150gal.
We do all sorts of calls from the simple 5gal of gas to the boat on the beach in a storm to running the inlets in weather most would not. We do our best to keep safe and not create any more dangerous situations but inevitable you spend enough time on the water and you will find yourself in some situations you hope you can get out of. We also find our selfs helping get many people back to shore safely. It is a wickedly rewarding job and one I think i can say all Sea Tow Captains do for the excitement and the opportunity to help people out of some bad, worse and horrible situations.
I love your pic man! what type of rib is that?
