Why not buy a boat designed for 'in the canals and Marco River only', no Gulf of Mexico use, cross train the police force and make the boat detail one of the regular 'police car' routines with rotating staff? I've watched the 'we need a better boat' process, accept there is potential for needing water rescue and water side fire fighting, just do not understand the scale of the boat. What happened to the argument that the boat is needed for fire fighting capacity, which no longer is heard?
When the boat is delivered, turn it over to the Coast Guard to operate.
PS Will the new boat result in a better fire/police protection rating and lower insurance rates?
