Here was 33.

See the logo on the stern of this puppy . . . er . . . LARC?


My friend Tony A shared these photos with me.  He said they’re in the public domain, but they show up nowhere in google searches.


So here are my questions:  Were these only experimental?  What is the approximate vintage of these photos?  What has become of the boats?  A hydrographic survey company used to have at least one such vessel in their Staten Island yard . . . are they the same boats?


I’m just full of questions this morning.  Many thanks to Tony for sharing.  Enjoy the beautiful sunny spring morning.  Here is an index of  previous tugster posts with NYPD vessels.
