Sea rescue painting?

I was told these are waters off Long Island, but there's nothing in the painting that proves that (pardon the glare). It's signed RA Mattson, and the signature is very stylized. This has the look of an illustration for a magazine. The little boat looks like an emergency craft.
Addendum some 17 hours after the post: My friend Robert at the Live from the Surface of the Moon blog did some research on RA Mattson and learned he's likely a Danish artist, born in 1935, who specializes in marine paintings. So much for the Long Island story.
