WELCOME ABOARD !
        This is the home of the 125' and 165' Coast Guard Cutters Association. We serve our shipmates who proudly manned these Cutters. Our association is one of the Coast Guards finest. We focus on the men who have served on these ships and the camaraderie we  all still share. 
        We are always looking for fellow shipmates who served on any of these 125' or 165' Cutters.  If you are one or know someone who did, please contact us .
        However, we welcome all former Coast Guard shipmates who would like to join us.
  
        If you have photos or sea stories you would like to share, please send them to us. We will scan your photographs and return them to you.
        And by all means, pass the word to your shipmates that you have found the site for our beloved cutters.

        If you have email or access to email please be sure to include it in your contact information.
