Almost two years after leaving Sitka on an historic 8,000-mile voyage through the Northwest Passage, the USCG Cutter Maple returned to duty with a splash this spring at its new homeport in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. The ship assisted NASA in an open-ocean test of its Orion spacecraft.
The Cutter Maple has completed its historic voyage through the Northwest Passage, and has arrived at Coast Guard Yard. The 225-foot buoy tender is only the 6th Coast Guard vessel to sail the famed route.
Ensign Megan Toomey says the crew has been working for a week turning the USCG Cutter Maple into a totally terrifying Halloween venue. "It's scary even with the lights on," she says. The Haunted Ship is open 6-10 PM Fri Oct 28. The donation of canned food or school supplies is encouraged!
