Off Topic - Whiskey Island INFO

Postby LEWDOG » Fri Sep 23, 2011 7:23 pm

I'm trying to find out if there is, was, or going to be a USCGC Apalachee WYTM-71 maritime museum at the old Coast Guard station at Whiskey Island ? The 110' tug was one I was station on for 3 year back in 1975 through 1978 and last night I found out that she was moved to Ohio back in 2009 to be made into a museum , while looking on the net. Thanks for any help and info on her whereabouts .
