This is an image of two of the Coast Guard's Two Motor Lifeboats stationed at Morro Bay, California. The Bar at the entrance of the harbor causes enough danger to small craft that these boats are kept at the lifeguard station here to ensure safe traffic in and out of the harbor. I talked to one of the Coast Guard personnel there who told me that these boats are ran very hard, offering assistance to folks who misjudge the bar.
