"We are pleased to introduce our new Defender 21 model," vice president of sales Tim Spooner said in a statement. "This boat will be used for dive and rescue purposes on Allatoona Lake. This vessel will be purchased using Georgia Emergency Management funds received through the U.S. Homeland Security [Department]."
