The Active-class cutter USCGC Alert (WMEC-127) moored on the Columbia River, by Hayden Island in Portland, Oregon. Seen on 14 August 2019. Photo from Wikipedia by Godsfriendchuck.
Ran across an effort to preserve a bit of our heritage. These volunteers’ mission to “…preserve, maintain and operate the old United States Coast Guard Cutter Alert, WSC-127 as a living museum. As one of the last warships representative of her era afloat we feel we have been given a chance to see to it that this fine old vessel continues to enlighten and inspire future generations.”She is now in North Portland Oregon.
As far as I can tell she is not open to the public yet. (Tried to e-mailed them but did not get a response.)
Anyone have a current status?
