Very impressive cutter that has holds historical significance for anyone interested in our Coast Guard history. Very interesting and well worth the small contribution. On Friday/Saturday evenings enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset from its deck. Clever, and well done.

This ship tells many stories. The volunteers that keep this floating museum are to be commended. The ship is very educational and a tribute to the Coasties that served on her.

Sorry no food
The hours say 10 - 4 but that must obviously be for the museum and gift shop, not sunset. At what time and on what days can we visit for the sunset? what is the admission for this? And I was told that there are beverages available and we can bring our own snacks. Is this accurate? Thanks!
