Sea Cadets Hope to Buy Former USCGC Acushnet

Acushnet

Stars and Stripes is reporting that Minnesota Sea Cadets are attempting to raise money to purchase the former USCGC Acushnet (WMEC-167) which also saw service as the USS Shackle(ARS-9), a Diver-class rescue and salvage ship.

She would probably be a good choice. Not only only does the ship have a long and notable history, this class was robustly built.
