Isolated Crew Enclosure – ICE for the New Rescue Boat

With the support of the community and BC Gaming, RCMSAR Station 1 has raised $370,000 towards replacing the 30 year old Howe Sound Rescue Boat. The new vessel is under construction at Titan Boats, the hull is ready to receive the ICE console. We expect to be on the water in April.

A new Type 1 Fast Response Vessel which meets today's safety standards costs $380,000.
