It mentions that the program is part of the Coast Guard's recapitalization and standardization of its entire small boat fleet and includes a lifecycle support system, which is a Web-based application that houses all support data for the boat. Accordingly, the Coast Guard will purchase 180 to 250 medium response boats to replace its 41-foot utility boat.
