95' Cape class ASW Patrol Boat USCGC NEWAGEN (WPB-95318) In service 1955-1982 Ma'alea Harbor, Maui, Hawaii - Guardian of the Islands
She was stationed at Maui, HI, from 1969 to 1982, and was used for LE and SAR. On 23 September 1969, she dewatered and towed a disabled tug 6 miles west-southwest of Mahukona Lighthouse, HI.
Cape Newagen made history in April, 1979, when she became the first U.S. “warship” to be commanded by a woman. LTJG Beverly G. Kelley commanded Cape Newagen from April, 1979 until July, 1981.
She was awarded the Coast Guard Meritorious Unit Commendation for her SAR activities during “one of the worst winter storms in the history of Maui County” during the period from 8 to 11 January, 1980.
She was decommissioned 24 September 1982 after a brief ceremony at the Coast Guard Base at Sand Island. At that time she was under the command of LTJG David F. Quick. Her crew cross-decked to the Cape Corwin, which replaced the Cape Newagen.

The aging 95' ASW boats were replaced by the 110' Island class Patrol boats which have seen extensive service in the Persian Gulf homeported at Bahrain

Constructed and commissioned between 1982 and 1992 https://www.uscg.mil/datasheet/110wpb.asp Photo from my collection USCGC TYBEE, Woods Hole, MA

110' Island class Patrol Boats - patches 1990's to current - MAUI and WRANGELL are currently part of the Patrol Forces Southwest at Bahrain

METOMPKIN and PADRE are out of commission as they and six others were basically destroyed during a botched conversion attempt by the contractor (big USCG scandal)
