SEATTLE FIRE | MARINE ONE

In March of 2019, we took a trip over to the Fisherman’s Terminal in Seattle to see if we could catch a glimpse of any infamous fishing vessels or fire boats.  We were lucky this time and found SFD’s Marine One repositioning themselves in the marina.

A perfect and cold day to photograph them in action and worth the trip over,  no matter where their destination was on that day.

M/V MARINE ONE also known as Fire Boat 1, is a FireStorm 50 (50 foot) model fireboat constructed by MetalCraft Marin of Kingston, Ontario (Canada).

It can reach speeds up to about 30 knots and fitted with a 200-gallon foam tank for chemically-fueled fires as well as land-based firefighting, rescue and salvage operations in contaminated environments.  Additional capabilities include accomodate EMS treatment, pinpoint people in the water and other hot spots through a imaging camera.

It was put into service in 2006.
