The RB-M, built by Marinette Marine in Manitowoc, Wis., is a more capable platform for search and rescue and law enforcement, allowing Coast Guard crews to get on the scene of a maritime emergency safer and faster.

The preparation of the Erie Canal Harbor site in Buffalo was starting up this week. Construction crews were on the scene getting ready to re-dig the main terminus of the Erie Canal at it's original location (formerly occupied by Buffalo Memorial Auditorium after the canal was filled in & burried). The $23 Million project involves the recreation of the junction of the Erie Canal, Main-Hamburg Canal and the Commercial Slip in downtown Buffalo. -  Brian W.
