MLB/SERV (MOTOR LIFE BOATS/SURFACE EFFECT RESCUE VEHICLES) OPERATION STUDY

The United States Coast Guard has conducted an extensive operational study of a combined boat and surface effect rescue vehicle concept of operations. The study was conducted with the use of two CG 44 foot motor life boats (MLB) and two Bell SK-5 surface effect rescue vehicles (SERV). The primary objective of the study was to develop more extensive and accurate information that would enable a better assessment of the actual value of the SERV in all Coast Guard mission areas, as it compared to other CG surface and air facilities.
