Re: New Coast Guard Vessel ?

I was wondering if the smugglers were stupid enough to shoot?
I understand peace through superior firepower, reason the fighting would stop when we showed up in Bosnia, just wondered if the USCG ever got into any gunfights.

Re: New Coast Guard Vessel ?

RAre but there used to be firefights when drug runners used surface speed boats. Think it's now submarines...

How about some of these...
Ocean Eagle 43 - Nigel Irens Design

https://cmn-group.com/products-and-s...cean-eagle-43/
238 nautical miles at 15 knots with only 1 ton of fuel

OCEAN EAGLE 43 is an ocean patrol trimaran combining a very slender hull with two small floats enabling the required stability.
This combination reduces the fuel expenditure, increases speed and autonomy, while insuring a good level of comfort even in moderate to rough sea conditions.

Re: New Coast Guard Vessel ?

...from another forum...

We already do, an autonomous sub-seeker; the Sea Hunter, developed under a DARPA program. There are several variants to the platform, including coastal reconnaissance.

Re: New Coast Guard Vessel ?

There were 2 items on the Ocean Eagle design that I did NOT see on the DARPA design,...a helicopter pad, and the very dedicated RIB launch system at the stern. Many years ago when the Coast Guard was looking for design submissions for a new coastal patrol boat I made suggestions that they consider a multihull form, more specifically a Lock Crowther catamaran design. They would have nothing to do with any multihull designs at that time!

But I do remember that their was one very specific feature they required, and that was the integration of the RIB launching and recovery system.

I'll see if I can find a photo of that Crowther design. Ah yes, here it is, and a subject thread I introduced about it

Wonder how many 'thousands' of these we could have for the price of ONE of those VERY expensive littoral combat ships, particularly the Lockheed one?
