07/05/10 89 W, 1 I - + 2 - 6 Wilmington Fire Boats

For your holiday Monday enjoyment, here are photos of Wilmington's five (of six) Atlantic fireboats. Did some digging, and found these pictures along with assorted historical information. Plopped everything on a web site including larger versions of the below images. Left to right, top to bottom are: Atlantic I in 1925, Atlantic III circa 1947, Atlantic IV, Atlantic V in 1987, and Atlantic VI in 2007. Photo credits include the New Hanover County Public Library, the Star-News, and MetalCraft Marine. Enjoy!
