Inscription.  This craft was built after World War II to replace the LCP[R] as the main “cast and recovery “ boat. The Frogmen went over the side into a rubber boat and then into the water. They were picked up again in much the same way. Although this boat is much larger than an LCP[R], it was much faster because of its V-shape bow. In 1983, the LCP[L] was replaced by the SEAFOX.
 
Erected by National Navy UDT-Seal Museum.
