Thanks for joining us once again for "Tailboard Talk". Spring is here and Fire Season, errr, I mean summer is right around the corner... and that means boating season is upon us!

This month we will be featuring die cast models of boats and water craft related to Police, Fire and EMS. Feel free to post any photos, info or thoughts on your Emergency related model boats.

Please remember to try not to post back to back photos of multiple vehicles so that others have a chance to share too. This will give everyone a chance to participate. Once someone else posts another photo or 24 hours has past then have at it! Thanks again and have fun!

see some nice fire & police boats here- other than the Boley versions, and a bunch of the matchbox ones... I don't have much else. I did get these gearbox sets awhile ago:

Posted ImageUSCG Hummer & RIB

1:43 Gearbox
Hummer H2
Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat
Department of Homeland Security
United States Coast Guard
Port Security Law Enforcement

Posted ImageRace to the Ramp
It's a friendly little competition to make it to the boat ramp first before a day out on the water.

Maybe it'll be a collision course to wackiness.

1:43 Gearbox diecast:
Chevrolet C1500
US Park Ranger Boat

I don't collect much of the bigger stuff anymore, but I certainly wish Gearbox had done more of these combos

Those GearBox truck/boat models are really nice. I almost bought the Forest Service Park Ranger set.....now wish I had.

Interesting to have the Coast Guard and Forest Service 'racing' to get in the water first.....competing law enforcement agencies hoping to hand out the first citations of the season! :lol:

Yeah, I had just emptied a pill bottle and saw your creative use of a top, so I tried to make our photos look as alike as possible. I didn't quite get the same angle as you did, so you couldn't see the deck on mine.....

Daron, FDNY boat and SUV.

Got to love the VW for the SUV, as opposed to the many Suburbans and Pickups the FDNY really uses.
