Textron dissolved the Dorsett division in the mid to late 1970's. They sold off the molds and all equipment. Similar boats were made using the molds for several years afterward, some of these boats were called Sierra's which look like the Dorsett Catalina. The engineering talent and others within the Dorsett division went on to work for Textron marine, designing and building the incredible coast guard vessels that we see today. Many of the Dorsett boats were styled by the famous designer, Raymond Loewy. Many of these boats especially the Catalina mad between the years of 1959 and 1963 are highly sought after and can be quite valuable if in pristine condition. Much more Dorsett information is available at fiberglassics.com

As part of the United States Marine Corps, the 2nd Marine Division is tasked with ground combat for the II Marine Expeditionary Force. It has been around since the early stages of World War II, so it's no newcomer to combat. On top of that, the division comprises various battalion and regiments. The 2nd Marine Division has been a big part of the Marine Corps since its inception. This particular division is based in North Carolina of the United States of America.What comprises the 2nd Marine Division?Multiple battalions and regiments comprise the 2nd Marine Division and have seen combat at various times over the years. Some of the components of this division include the 2nd Marine Regiment, the 6th Marine Regiment, and the 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion. Also, there are a few other regiments and battalions. Over the years, each of these components of the 2nd Marine Division have seen their fair share of combat. They have been put on the front line in various battles throughout the last 60 to 70 years, so they are extremely experience and skilled at what they do.What has the 2nd Marine Division been involved in?In World War II, parts of the 2nd Marine Division fought in the Pacific Theater of Operations. The division took part in the battles at Tarawa, Saipan, and various other locations. The division saw plenty of action during WWII. After WWII, the 2nd Marine Division reinforced Guantanamo Bay, spent time in the Dominican Republic, and went to Lebanon. Most of these operations involved keeping the peace rather than direct combat. The 2nd Marine Division has been active in the War on Terror by being sent to Iraq for multiple tours. In 2003, the division was first sent to the country.How valuable has the 2nd Marine Division been?Obviously, the 2nd Marine Division has been extremely valuable to the Marine Corps in the last 60 to 70 years. They have contributed to various battles and peacekeeping operations. So then, nobody can doubt the courage and valor of this division because it has seen plenty of fighting since it was created back in World War II.
