Restoration of retired Coast Guard 44 MLB 44364 - Joe Bercik
The boat served in Neah Bay, Washington for its entire career before being retired and ending up in the hands of a Sheriff Department in the state of Washington. It subsequently exchanged private ownership twice before I purchased it last fall and had it shipped from Seattle, Washington to its new home in Sandusky, Ohio.
The previous owner had painted the boat orange but otherwise maintained the boat in good condition. This past spring I repainted the bottom and hull back to its original Coast Guard colors. I have now started to repaint the topsides. I was able to have the boat documented through the Coast Guard/Homeland Security with its original numbers, 44364. The Coast Guard has approved of the new paint job and appear to be pleased to have it on the Great Lakes.
As an ex-Coast Guardsman I am very proud to own this boat and maintain it as it was in its glory days.
