CG-40443
c 1953

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to get out of bed in the morning! This boat was out of Gloucester, NJ. It seems that the BM was going full bore in a fog at night and hit a pier. Luckily the only injuries sustained were a couple of broken ribs and one arm. The sailor in the photo is unidentified but with his smile I doubt he was part of the crew.

CG-40534 Utility Boat

This was a spare boat at Group Woods Hole. This was used when one of the 44MLB's was in the yards at the Group. This boat was for use on the Stage Harbor side. Chatham has two sides. The fish Pier side which has the Chatham Bar location and the other (around Monomoy Island). The Stage Harbor side is where a UTB could be used for SAR. It took a Period of 2 hours to switch sides with a boat but the fish pier side always required a Motor Life Boat. Thanks for the description Bill.
