I rejected calling this “government boats xx” because the vessels belong have more in common than that. Boundary keeping makes up part of their mission. Griffon patrols the border between two countries, maybe on a political ice-breaking mission . . .

Penobscot Bay cruises through Hell Gate between tidal straits aka “rivers,”

these RB-S‘s between Brooklyn and Staten Island,

Penobscot Bay and Line between the especially tense line between Queens and Manhattan, and

440 between “us” and “them.” Moose and manatee in the sixth boro!!

Some unrelated catch-up: My answer to the question on distance of pitch and roll at any 100′ level is 35 feet. It’s one week to the marine Olympics in NY. And it’s time to vote in a run-off that ends in only TWO weeks.
