Here's some neat pics I dug up from the USCG website. Since everything is so cold and iced up, I thought they were appropiate. Happy viewing.

If I find any more I'll keep posting them.

The Mackinaw, when it was white. They painted it red because the color red is easier to see on the ice.

Big your on a roll.....keep posting. Lets see some pics of there other ships. Maybe a run down of all there vessels.

I had heard once that the USCG was the 12th largest navel fleet in the world. Any truth to that?

I saw this on the link provided in the "Freighter stuck in the South Channel" thread in Lake Discussion...

2/9/2004

On Saturday Marinette Marine side launched the U. S. Coast Guard cutter Alder.
Alder is the last of the fleet of 16 Juniper B-class, 225-foot sea-going buoy tenders, to be built at the Marinette Marine Corporation shipyard. The Coast Guard's Buoy Tender Replacement Project, a major acquisition to replace the WW II era 180-foot buoy tenders, began in 1996 when the Cutter Juniper was commissioned.

Ready to Launch...
