USCG-11 1942 WWII 75th Anniversary D-Day Rescue Boat Display Event

Post by wanderingwillys » Sun Apr 28, 2019 1:06 pm

Come check out our progress of the restoration of this piece of history. We will be having our first public viewing of the USCG-11, a 1942 83ft wooden hulled Coast Guard cutter that served as a rescue vessel during the 1944 Normandy D-Day landings. We have a long way to go, but feel it's important to share this project with the public and to honor our country's servicemen and women on the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings.

The event will be held at the North Dock of the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle, WA from June 5th through June 9th

We had a good showing - working on tenting the boat for the winter now but we are still doing work party days if anyone is interested...
