It’s another beautiful Shoreline morning. The sailboats are coming in like colorful butterflies. A familiar vessel is also displaying her special skills; today she looks like a fire fighter.

This 30 foot rescue vessel was a joint project of the Edmonds Police Department, Port of Edmonds, and the Edmonds Fire Department. The money for purchase was granted by the Department of Emergency Management.

Since then the Edmonds Fire Department consolidated with Fire District 1 which has assumed ownership. Charles W. Cain was an Edmonds firefighter, and Marine 16 is named in his memory.
