U.S.C.G. Cutter Clover, W292
180 foot class bouy tender with ice breaking hull. This hand tinted official ship's photo was taken in Sitka Sound in the Inside Passage in Alaska some time in the 50s.
I served on this ship in 1966-67 in the rough Alaskan water, frequently answering emergency search and rescue calls in violent stormy weather.
