James J Dempsey shared this link of the freshly-painted "Bernard C. Webber" in dry dock in Tampa, FL. It is a rare opportunity to see the entire hull of the vessel.
The "Bernard C. Webber" is a Sentinal-class cutter. She was the first vessel in this class to be built and, in a departure from Coast Guard traditions for naming vessels, these cutters are named in honor of enlisted personnel who heroically served in the USCG.
The "Bernard C. Webber" was commissioned in 2012, 60 years after the crew of the CG36500 - Bernie Webber, Andy Fitzgerald, Ervin Maske, and Richard Livesey - rescued 32 members of the crew of the tanker "Pendleton" east of Chatham, MA.
Thank you James Dempsy and the FB page US Coast Guard Cutter Bernard C Webber for sharing this link & photos.
(This is a modified version of an earlier post because the link was not functioning properly, therefore, the photos and captions from the US Coast Guard Cutter Bernard C Webber's FB page were downloaded and reposted here.)
