Lineage:

The hulls pictured have been built by built by Viking Welding as fire/rescue boat and Reconcraft as a passenger boat, but variants of this design have been built by other builders- generally for utility work and oil boom deployment.     The bow, chine and topsides are easily modified to a landing craft.  Power has generally been single, transom mounted, 150 hp outboard though it can accommodate outboard brackets and a range of singles or twins.
