TAMPA FIRE BOATS

 

Tampa has "Two" Fireboats.
One is smaller and older. The other is larger and newer.
Both are at the dock at Marjorie Park Marina on Davis Island in Tampa.
We photographed the boats in March 2015.

~ 2019 UPDATE ~

Tampa Fireboat 1
"Patriot"

Tampa took delivery of their Firestorm 70 Fireboat in 2009.
The "Patriot" is 69'6" LOA and 22'10" beam, with 34" draft.
The pumping capacity is 14,000 gpm.
It has a 500 gallon AFFF tank.
(Updated photos April 2019)

 

2018 UPDATE

Quite a bit has happened to the "Patriot" since the March 2015 posting.
The boat experienced some problems due to barnacles forming and damaging the engines.
The boat has also been sand blasted and re-painted to require less maintenance.
Updated photos February 2018.

 

With the "Patriot" being out of service for the last 2 years or so due to engine problems,
the older "Richard D. Santmyer" has been the primary fireboat for Tampa.
Updated photos February 2018.
