This Day in Coast Guard History – Nov. 6

Thursday, November 05, 2009

1882-At half past 4 in the afternoon the lookout at Station No. 8, Tenth District (Forty Mile Point, Hammond’s Bay Lake Huron) discovered a small boat north of the station about six miles distant, drifting out into the lake apparently unmanageable. Two of the life-saving crew put off in a sailboat. The boat was reached at about dusk, some miles out from the land, with a man and a boy in it. Both were wet and nearly perished with the cold. Their boat was half full of water. They were at once transferred to the rescuing boat and their frail craft was taken in tow to the station.

1984-The Coast Guard accepted operational control from the Navy of the SES-200, a Surface Effect Ship, for five months of operational evaluations.
