"The CG 36500 expects to meet up with the
newly commissioned 154 foot long Coast Guard Sentinel Class
cutter, the Bernard C. Webber, if and when she
comes North from her home port in Miami Beach, Florida. We will keep everyone
advised when this might happen. The significance of the first of a new class of
cutter being named after Coxswain Webber should not be lost on anyone who has a
sense of Coast Guard history, as in the past the Coast Guard has named their
vessels after Secretaries of The Treasury, capes, points, winds, sharks, and
flowering shrubs. Not to mention other high profile people like Alex Haley, Abbie Burgess, etc. This class will bear the names of heroic enlisted men and
women of the Coast Guard. What an honor to be the first in a class of
commissioned U.S. vessels !"
"The CG36500 will be in the Chatham
4th of July parade! After all, she was a part of Chatham history and this year
is the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Town Of Chatham. On board will
be Andy Fitzgerald, the last surviving crew member from the Pendleton
rescue back in 1952. Later on in late August, the CG36500 will go to
Salem, Mass. for the Antique and Classic Boat Festival.
In the meantime, come by Rock Harbor in Orleans to take a look at the 66 year
