Station Point Allerton, Hull MA
A small boat station usually has several boats of various sizes. Many stations will have 32' firefighting boats, 41' utility boats, 44' motor life boats, and 47' motor life boats. All these boats are utilized in multi-role functions, such as harbor law enforcement, rescue and firefighting. The first and second patches are older designs while the last is a more recent one. The first patch shows a 44 footer riding the surf, while the second patch shows a 40 footer, a lighthouse, a buoy and a Lightship. Have no idea what the character is. The last patch returned to having a 44 MLB on it, with the lighthouse in the background.
