William Wilkinson and Timothy Dring provide detailed history and technical design information on each and every type of small rescue craft ever used by the United States Life-Saving Service and United States Coast Guard, from the early 1800s to current day. By looking at these vessels, many of which featured innovative designs, they shed light on the brave men and women who served in USLSS and USCG stations, saving innumerable lives. In the book and on the accompanying CD, rare photographs and drawings of each type of boat accompany detailed design histories, specifications, and station assignments for each craft. Including motorized, wind-powered, and human-powered vessels, this work will become an important reference for maritime historians, rescue craft preservation groups, and museums, as well as members of the general public interested in these craft.
