USCGC James Makes First Port Call in Baltimore
Transiting through the Atlantic seaboard on its commissioning cruise, the US Coast Guard’s newest National Security Cutter, James, made its first port call to Baltimore, Tuesday.
Starting Wednesday until Thursday, the cutter will be open for free public tours in West Broadway Pier in Fells Point.
Cutter James was recently commissioned for operational service at Boston Aug. 8 and is making way to its inaugural homeport in Charleston scheduled to arrive Aug. 28.
The James is the fifth of eight NSC’s – the largest and most technologically advanced class of cutters in the Coast Guard’s fleet.
