Coast Guard commandant to visit Charleston
Associated Press
Thursday, June 25, 2009


The commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard is visiting South Carolina.

Admiral Thad Allen is visiting Detyens Shipyard in North Charleston on
Thursday. That's where two high-endurance Coast Guard cutters are
undergoing maintenance.

The Gallatin and Dallas went into dry dock last month and were taken out of
the water for maintenance on their hulls.

Both vessels are more than 40 years old and have suffered excessive
corrosion and other problems.

Most of the fleet's cutters are about that old. Allen has said the aging of
the fleet has meant increasing maintenance costs for the Coast Guard and
lost operational days for the vessels.
