USS EAGLE

2007.08.10

John Zimmerman's nephew is Matt Tolliver, currently a "Swabby" at USCG Academy onboard "training" on the "EAGLE". The "Eagle" is 297 ft. loa with a sail area around 21,500 sq.ft. With the right crew, a new clean bottom, and a feathering prop, we sailors gammed and thought we can push her to 20 knots under sail.......... "yeah baby".....aarrgh.

The wheels are original, and the brass trim still carry the engraved name,"Horst Wessel" given to her by the Nazis. When the USCG took possession of her at the end of WWII, they just covered the nazi name with a new nameplate. The Admiral's quarters are still maintained the same way Hitler had them; Matt said there are still Nazi decorations in original locations.
