Former Gibraltar fire rescue boat finds new home

While the Town of Gibraltar Fire Department's new Gibraltar Rescue 50 fire rescue boat responded its first calls, the former rescue vessel has found a home with a private owner.  The 30-year-old, 22-foot-long Boston Whaler Sentry was sold for $35,000, with the money used to defray part of the cost of the new boat.  Fire department Captain Adrian Murre says the Sentry still has a long useful life ahead, however it had some limitations when it came to increases in water rescue calls.



It didn't take long for Gibraltar Rescue 50 to prove it was a worthy replacement for the Boston Whaler Sentry.  Within 18-hour after it was christened, Gibraltar Rescue 50 responded to two incidents.
