Light Special "Always
Prepared" is the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard, and it perfectly
describes a search wherein Lifeboat Station Juneau received an EPIRB
signal, launched its boat, and homed in on the beacon--only
to discover it was ashore. More to the point, the crew finally arrived
in front of a marine store, where a red-faced employee told them
he had inadvertently activated the unit. The Coasties were once
again Semper Paratus, even if the emergency was in aisle seven.
The Volvo Penta D8 fills a gap in the company’s line of recreational-boat-ready diesels, and it’s already linked to a next-generation IPS pod. Take our word for it, you’ll be seeing more of this engine at the next boat shows and beyond.
