Description

The Coast Guard cutter Adelie (pronounced Ah-DELL-ee) is the first of two new 87-foot patrol boats scheduled to be stationed in Port Angeles. The 13th Coast Guard District officially welcomed the USCGC Adelie on August 17, 2001. The 87-foot cutter, built by Bollinger Shipyard, in Lockport, La., is the second to arrive in the Pacific Northwest, replacing the 82-foot Point Class Patrol Boats. The cutter brings with it money and time-saving technology such as updated bridge radar and controls, and more safety features including the rear deploying small boat.

The Adelie also has the capability to support a co-ed crew. The aluminum superstructure and steel hull and main deck are designed for a 25 year service life. The new design has several enhancements over the aging 82 foot patrol boats that it is replacing. Improvements include stability in open ocean (up to 8-foot seas), significantly upgraded habitability (allowing for a mixed-gender, 10-person crew with 11 berths max), 25-knot maximum speed, and compliance with all current and projected environmental protection laws. The 87-footer employs an innovative stern launch and recovery system using an aluminum-hulled inboard diesel-powered water jet small boat. The ship’s vastly larger pilothouse is equipped with an integrated bridge system including an electronic chart display information system, which interfaces with the Coast Guard’s new surface search radar.

Each coin measures 1.75 in (44mm) in diameter.
