Meeting Date: 03/27/2019  

Receive, consider and act upon the purchase of a 2019 Zodiac rescue boat and motor.
Located in the Fire Department’s 2019 Capital budget is the replacement of a 2008 Zodiac F420 boat and motor.  The existing boat is now 10 years old and has multiple issues with air bladder leakage, bladder valve repairs, and structural failures.  This boat is one of two rescue boats utilized by TWFD Technical Rescue Team for swift water rescue, dive recovery, and special event coverage.
The F420 Mill Pro Boat is 4.2 meters in length (13.9 ft.) and is powered by an Evinrude E-TEC 40hp direct steering motor.  The watercraft is designed for emergency rescue operations and meets military specifications to provide high performance maneuverability and agility in fast moving rough waters. 
Due to the specialization of the watercraft, the manufacturer, Zodiac MilPro, only recognizes Triad Marine & Industrial Supply as the sole provider and authorized Military and Professional Dealer and Service Facility in the State of Texas (see attached sole source letter).
The department will continue to use the existing tilt launch trailer and the older rescue boat will be reassigned to the Township’s Parks and Rec Department and utilized as a light utility boat.
Approve the purchase of a 2019 F420 Zodiac Rescue Boat and Motor from Triad Marine & Industrial Supply, the sole source provider, in the amount of $24,366.50.
