LastStandOnZombieIsland reports USCGC Alex Haley’s last sister ship, the former
USS Beaufort (ATS-2), now the Republic of (South) Korea Navy Ship ROKS Peyongtaek (ATS-27), is to be decommissioned and scrapped.
The blog has a suggestion that might be worth pursuing.
“Maybe the South Koreans will let the USCG go over Peyongtaek for spare parts before they send her to the breakers.”
These ships were built in Britain by Broke Marine. That is very unusual for any US Navy ship. It probably also means finding spares may be more difficult that it would be for a US built ship.
Thanks to MSR for bringing this to my attention.
