Fireboat No. 1



DescriptionRatingInfo
Fireboat No. 1 was built in 1929 for the Port of Tacoma by the Coastline Shipbuilding Company of Tacoma, Washington for US$148,000. She is 96 feet 6 inches (29.4 m) long with a 21 foot (6.4 m), six-inch (152 mm) beam and a six-foot (1.8 m) draft. Her seven water cannons have a capacity of 10,000 US gallons per minute (630 L/s). The vessel is the only fireboat in U.S. history to protect a major port by itself for more than half a century. After 54 years of service in waterfront fire protection, harbor security patrols, search and rescue missions, and water pollution control, Fireboat No. 1 was put up on on a permanent dry berth at a public beach near Tacomaís Old Town neighborhood. She is one of only five fireboats designated as a National Historic Landmark. Visitors are able to walk around her exterior, but her interior is closed to the public. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fireboat_No._1_(Tacoma,_Wash.)
