WHO KNEW?—On Friday when we were checking out Freedom Pier, King Street, and the Delaware River, we discovered the Gloucester City Fire Department’s water rescue boat tied up at the dock next to the North Wind Schooner. Fire Marshall Pat Hagan, Department spokesperson said on Monday that the Camden City Fire Department gave the boat to Gloucester in the spring of 2014.
“It was free,” said Hagan. “It didn’t cost the City a dime.”
The 10-year-old boat, a Sea Arc, is 27 ft -long and has two 200 horse Yamaha outboard motors. It is used for water rescue. The Fire Marshall said several firefighters are licensed to pilot the boat. Hagan said the boat has been dispatched several times in the past year.
