USCG Cutter James Commissioning this August in Boston

Excitement is certainly growing for the upcoming commissioning of the USCGC JAMES in August. We are delighted to report that the impressive new National Security Cutter has successfully passed sea trials and been accepted by the United States Coast Guard. Captain Andrew Tiongson and the cutter's new crew will spend much of the next two months training and becoming acquainted with their new ship.

The JAMES, is named for Hull's own legendary lifesaver Joshua James. James is credited with saving more than 540 lives from shipwrecks during his 60 year career as both a Massachusetts Humane Society volunteer lifesaver and the first Keeper of the historic Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, now the Hull Lifesaving Museum.

This impressive new cutter, the fifth of eight Legend Class National Security Cutters is the most technologically advanced cutters in the Coast Guard fleet. They are designed to perform a variety of missions and operations at sea including: national defense, port security, alien migrant interdiction, maritime law enforcement, environmental defense, search and rescue, and drug interdiction.

Rear Admiral John Korn, Assistant Commandant for Acquisitions said of USCGC James, "It seems only fitting for a cutter that will protect the lives of millions of Americans to bear the name James." The USCGC James was christened on August 16, 2014 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and will commissioned August 8 in Boston.
