Cast of BAYWATCH on Patrol BoatBaywatch Boats  - Yellow high speed rescue/patrol boats featured on the maritime adventure BAYWATCH/NBC/SYN/1989-2001. The Baywatch boat patrol is part of the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who patrol more than 60 million visitors who annually frequent the beaches of Southern California.

The Head Baywatch lifeguard is Lt. Mitch Bucannon (David Hasselhoff) who coordinated all the male and female lifeguards employed by the County. Each lifeguard must be excellent swimmers, and be able to drive both land-based patrol vehicles and water-based vessels like their high speed yellow patrol boats which were used to pick up swimmers in distress or to thwart shark attacks, to name a few of the many troubles faced on the beach on a daily basis.

TRIVIA NOTE: The first modern Baywatch boat was stationed off Catalina Island in 1970. The current fleet, which operates from eight
locations, has a crew of two lifeguards per vessel, serving as boat operators and deckhands. See also - "Baywatch Babes"
