Restoration Project Overview

The US Coast Guard 44 Foot Motor Life Boat was the workhorse of the rescue boat fleet. Originally designed in 1961, the steel-hulled 44-foot motor life boats were built at the U.S. Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, MD., between 1963 and 1972. Motor lifeboats are the workhorses of many Coast Guard rescue stations. They are built to withstand the most severe conditions at sea and are capable of affecting a rescue at sea even under the most difficult circumstances. They are self-bailing, self-righting, almost unsinkable, and have a long cruising radius for their size. If one of these boats gets turned over on its back, its righting capabilities will turn it right side up in 30 seconds or less. They are designed to operate in 30-foot seas and 20-foot breaking surf and up to 50 miles offshore. The 44-footers have been replaced one for one by the newer 47-footer. One operational 44-footer (44301) remains in service today at Chatham, Massachusetts, because the draft of the new 47 footer is too deep for the shallower bar conditions there. One other 44 is at Group Woods Hole, MA. to be used as a parts boat.

Just how well will this year's Air Jordan gamma blue 11s retro do give that it's a colorway we've never seen before? We caní»t exactly imagine an Air Jordan XI sitting on shelves for too terribly long, but we have a feeling they won't fly off shelves as quick as previous years'"Concord" and "Bred" releases. The sneakers will land a bit earlier than we're used to seeing them-December 21st is the due date. Stay with us after the break for extra images on the "Gamma Blue" Jordan 11 gamma blue 11s and watch for them soon at shops like Nohble.
