USCG to Decommission Local Cutter

Thursday, July 29, 1999
USCGC Point Huron, an 82-ft. patrol boat with more than 32 years service in Hampton Roads was decommissioned during a ceremony at USCG Station Little Creek, Va. Point Huron was placed in service Feb. 17, 1967, and arrived at Station Little Creek May 3, 1967. The cutter's primary missions included search and rescue, drug interdiction, fisheries, marine environmental protection, recreational and commercial vessel safety, maintaining security zones, aiding in coastal defense and public affairs. Point Huron's normal operating area included the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, and the Atlantic Ocean from New Jersey to South Carolina. In August 1999, Point Huron will be replaced by USCGC Albacore, an 87-ft. coastal patrol boat.
