This post was updated on .
There is in no prerel about this since NECC/Riverines apparently don't post news much?
Anyway here are two official Navy photos of the Royal Netherlands Marines riding on RivRon 2 boats
110423-N-YO394-149 CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (March 23, 2011) Sailors assigned to Riverine Squadron (RIVRON) 3 train marines from the Royal Netherlands marine corps to operate riverine craft in formation during a three-week cross-training exercise to exchange tactics and refine skills. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Paul D. Williams/Released)



The lead boat is a Riverine Assault Boat (RAB) which is very similar to the SOC-R (identical hull).  the follow boat is a Riverine Patrol Boat (RPB) - Navy version of SURC.
