Design

The 30-Foot SRB was designed for close-in rescue work under moderately heavy seas and surf conditions. The boat is self-bailing and self-righting and can accommodate six survivors. Prior tomthe development of this boat, standard shipboard MSB were modified for limited duty and assigned to some shore stations.

The 30-foot SRB is constructed of solid glass-reinforced plastic from the chine down. Above the chine, the boat is foam core glass-reinforced plastic.
