Southeast Alaska’s newest Coast Guard cutter arrives in Juneau tomorrow (Friday).
The 110-foot Chandeleur is being transferred from Miami to Ketchikan to assist with regional responses throughout the panhandle.
The Island Class patrol boat has a crew of 18 and was commissioned in 1988. It recently underwent modernization and maintenance in Baltimore.
A welcoming ceremony for the Chandeleur is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Friday at Coast Guard Station Juneau downtown.
The vessel replaces the Acushnet, which was decommissioned in 2011.
