Still reporting from the road. Here's Baltimore's Fireboat 1 flowing water, and as photographed from Fells Point early this evening. Named John R. Frazier, the 87-foot, steel-hull craft was placed in service three years ago. It was the first major addition to the city's fireboat fleet in 47 years.

With a capacity of 7,000 GPM, the vessel is manned with a crew of five, and is stationed at Fort McHenry. Read more about the boat at the excellent Baltimore Fireboats web site. See you on the show floor tomorrow, and likely loitering (read: pestering) at the fire bloggers booth. Click to enlarge:
