New Cutters for Florida USCG Fleet

Friday, September 24, 1999
The USCG has added two cutters to its fleet based in the Florida Keys, helping to make it easier to patrol 55,000 sq. miles of increasingly busy waters. The two 110-footers, Chincoteague and Key Largo, and their crews were welcomed to port during a Trumbo Point ceremony. Chincoteague, named after an island in Virginia's Outer Banks, was previously stationed in Mobile, Ala. Key Largo comes close to its namesake from Savannah, Ga. Five other 110-foot cutters, two 270-ft. cutters and 10 small patrol boats are already stationed in the Keys. Another 110-footer will join the fleet next summer. From stations in Key West, Marathon and Islamorada, the USCG patrols about 750 miles of coastline and waters roughly bordered by Card Sound, Andros in the Bahamas, Cuba and Cape Sable.
