Cotuit Fire has replaced a 2005 21’ Edge Water with a 2014 USCG 29’ Metal Shark Marine. The boat was acquired as surplus, for free, from the USCG and had an initial cost of $311,442. It was updated with new electronics with donations from David Mugar and the Cotuit Firefighters Association including; FLIR, Radar, 3D sonar, AIS, and a portable fire pump. The new boat greatly improves our marine rescue/fire capabilities and the safety of our team. Cotuit Fire Department is conducting a naming contest and will hold a christening ceremony at a date TBD. Please check the “Cotuit Fire & Rescue Department” Facebook page for upcoming details.
