Flying along like the Starship Enterprise, a 47-foot motor life boat operating out of U.S. Coast Guard Station Depoe Bay unlimbers its twin Detroit diesels. With its crew braced forward, the vessel can reach 25 knots warp speed by marine standards. The surf station handles about 150 calls a year with a pair of the $1.2 million boats. Designed for a crew of four, the 47 entered service in 1997. (Photo by Rick Beasley)
