Cyclone Class Coastal Patrol Boats

 

The 179-foot Cyclone Class Coastal Patrol Boats are used by the Coast Guard to conduct Homeland Security, Search and Rescue and Law Enforcement operations in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Although originally built as 170-foot patrol boats, they were later fitted with a stern ramp modification that extended their length to 179 feet.  The vessels have a beam of 25 feet, and a draft of 8 feet. They carry a crew of approximately 27, two officers, and 25 enlisted personnel.   They can travel at speeds in excess of 35 knots, and carry a variety of weaponry.                                                                 Profile drawing of the USCGC Shamal WPC 13 by George Bieda

Profile drawing of the USCGC Point Martin WPB 82379 by George BiedaShown here on the left is the USCGC Point Martin (WPB-82379), one of the Point Class 82-FT patrol boats.  These boats began entering CG service in 1960, and some remained until as late as 1998. Used primarily for portProfile drawing of the USCGC Point Grace WPB 82323 in Vietnam War configuration by George Bieda security, Search And Rescue (SAR), and law enforcement, these cutters have been replaced by the 87-FT CPBs (see the Barracuda Class above).  During the Vietnam War, 26 of these boats were operated by the Navy with Coast Guard crews as part of Coast Guard Squadron 1, in Operation Market Watch.  This successful blockade of the South Vietnam coast denied sea routes used by the North Vietnamese to  supply their forces in the south with weapons and supplies.  With information provided by a recent customer, we were able to significantly improve the accuracy of our drawings in this configuration. The drawing on the right, of USCGC Point Grace WPB 82323, is an example of the improved version.  Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.  Be sure to select a specific ship, time frame, and print options when ordering!

"Catch of the Day" by William RaVell III

Catch of the Day by William RaVell IIIThe original painting upon which this print is based is a 16” x 20” acrylic on canvas. The subject matter, which is based on the artist’s long Coast Guard career, was his mental picture of a Coast Guard Boarding Team searching a trawler for illegal activities or cargo. The 25' Rigid Hull boat in the background transported the Boarding Team, while the boat in the foreground provides additional support if needed.  The original is faithfully reproduced on heavy-weight, acid-free, archival paper.  Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.
