Local News in Brief : $883,000 Budgeted to Fix Up Fireboats

The Long Beach Harbor Commission has agreed to spend $883,000 to save its two nearly new high-technology fireboats from fast becoming floating rust buckets and also to brush up the skills of the crews.

The commission is paying $653,000, the largest chunk of the funds, to a Terminal Island boatyard to correct design and construction deficiencies and to fix corrosion damage on the twin $2.2-million Challenger and Liberty, which were delivered to the city within the last two years.
