I know these USCG boats carry M60s and the crew packs pistols, but I’m guessing that below the serious veneer and sense of mission when all manner of people need protecting and sometimes saving, these crews must just enjoy the fun, the thrill of crashing through formidable wakes, wave-testing their equipment.  Splash!

Running around the harbor assessing the liumits of the machinery.  Sploosh!

Drilling xyz maneuvers.  Spray and more splash! I’d love to be a fly inside the cabin of one of these, listening to the conversation.  Might it have more in common with surfing than military?

Are they called Defender class even with the three-engine power?
