A Border Patrol Boat

As I looked in the general direction of the Coast Guard station, I saw this boat coming down the river.  It wasn't wearing Coast Guard colors, so I thought maybe it was a police boat.
 Turns out it is a Defender Class Boat belong to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  I've taken pictures of these at the State Harbor Portion of Milliken but I've never seen them out and about.
 This is the same boat that the Coast Guard uses but they tend to paint theirs orange for more visibility.
 I think the guy further in the cabin saw me.
 So the other one had to look took.
And off they go......
