Ceremony and Class Graduation.

Maneuvering demonstration.  It can move in any direction.  In one drill, it had the bow within arms reach of a buoy, then circled the buoy with the bow being within reach of the buoy the whole time.

VIP trip with some MDPD and older MDFR boats in the foreground.

On Board.  Everything is very high tech including video and recording.  

Under way.   With 36 on board, we were going 43 MPH between the cruise ships and the Mac Arthur Causeway.   In the video you'll see we're keeping up with the traffic on the highway.   FB1's top speed is 50 MPH.
