Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races 2017

Well it’s that time of year again, time to get out the trusty Bombard Commando C4R and get out on the water to support the Portland Rose Festival and the 2017 Dragon Boat Races. Every year IBC provides a boat and an operator to the City of Portland for the festivities ensuring safety and support standards that make everyone rest easy.

Mike’s Rescue Go Bag ready for most things on the water.

 

For the last several years IBC has been sending Mike down with his Bombard Commando C4R and 40hpTLDI outboard. This winning combo means that even with seven people in the boat Mike can still get on plane and maneuver quickly. If a rescue situation occurs this package covers the miles in minutes to retrieve the victim or victims and quickly deposit them on the beach for EMS responders. Other missions Mike and the proven Bombard Commando C4R complete are course security patrols, media trips, V.I.P. transportation, and integrating with local and federal agencies to support their missions.

Mike likes the Bombard Commando for river missions over the other options because you are able to leverage an incredible amount of the usable horse power and run thru sections too shallow or obstructed for other vessels. This bit of knowledge isn’t going unnoticed as more and more agencies are putting the Bombard Commando on their missions to manage tough water where they operate. See Capt. Ron run his C3 Commando thru the Peyete River and “Devil’s Staircase” and you’ll see IBC has been doing this stuff for awhile. This video was shot in the early 80’s, we were doing it back then and we still do it today!

This is a hard earned knowledge base and one that sets IBC apart from the competition. We use the boats we sell and we use them very hard.

The TLDI 40hp outboard motor is clean burning with a 3 star rating and fuel efficient  enough to make the new four stroke motors scratch their heads. When the mission needs 2 stroke pep and power IBC has you covered with the TLDI series of outboards new with a 5 year warranty. (Government Pricing Available)

New clean burning and quiet 2 stroke outboards are available at IBC that meet CARB requirements.

As the weekend unfolds Mike will be on station downtown is his indefatigable Bombard Commando C4R wearing IBC banners so if you see him on the beach say hi.

Flying the banner for the event.
