USCGC FIR (WLM-212) "The Oldest Tender In Service" - Lighthouse Tender in commission from 1939 to 1991


The United States Coast Guard Cutter Fir (WAGL/WLM 212) was the last lighthouse tender built specifically for the United States Lighthouse Service to resupply lighthouses and lightships, and to service buoys. Fir was built by the Moore Drydock Company in Oakland, California in 1939. On 22 March 1939, the U.S. Lighthouse Tender Fir was launched. She was steam driven with twin screws, 175 feet (53 m) in length, had a beam of 32 feet (9.8 m), drew 11 feet 3 inches (3.43 m) of water, and displaced 885 tons. Fir was fitted with a reinforced bow and stern, and an ice-belt at her water-line for icebreaking. She was built with classic lines and her spaces were lavishly appointed with mahogany, teak, and brass. The crew did intricate ropework throughout the ship. Currently being restored as a museum ship.


There is successor cutter also named Fir, USCGC Fir (WLB-213), currently in active use by the Coast Guard, which is a 225-foot (69 m) cutter. She was launched in 2003 and is based in Astoria, Oregon.

USCG STATION PAMAMA CITY, FL - 41' Utility Boat (large) CG-41345 that was stationed at Panama City depicted on the circa 1980's patch


The USCG Utility Boat, or UTB, was a standard utility boat used by the United States Coast Guard for a variety of inshore missions. The 41 ft (12 m) UTB was designed to operate under moderate weather and sea conditions where its speed and maneuverability made it an ideal platform.
The boats were welded 5086 aluminum, with a molded fiberglass superstructure and twin Cummins diesel engines with conventional shafts and propellers. They were capable of light towing, and were originally fitted with demountable fire monitors. Typical boat crew was three.
207 boats were constructed at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1972 to 1981.
As of 2005 there were 172 operational boats. Beginning in 2008, these aging boats were retired and replaced with the Response Boat-Medium over a 6–10 year period. The last active 41' boat, CG-41410, was taken out of service in Grand Haven, Michigan on 31 July 2014. The 45-foot Response Boat – Medium is the class' replacement.
