Notes
Survey number HAER DC-57
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
Significance: These vessels were built to serve as 180' U.S. Coast Guard cutters. A total of thirty-nine of these cutters, built in three subclasses, were purchased by the government from 1942-1944. The USCG designed the 180s to service Aids-to-Navigation (AtoN), perform Search and Rescue missions (SAR), carry out Law Enforcement duties (LE), and conduct ice-breaking operations. Members of the class have served in the USCG from 1942 to the present. They have significantly contributed to safe navigation on inland and international waters in times of peace and war.
