  • While serving at Beach Haven Coast Guard Station in 1966 and 67, among other duties, I was an offshore duty boat coxswain. We received the 44355 new from beginning built at the Coast Guards Curtis Bay Maryland ship yard. In its day, it was among the best built boats in the world. Almost 300 were constructed and distributed to life boat stations on both Atlantic and Pacific shores. Thru five decades of service the 44 foot, 20 ton, self righting motor lifeboats were credited with saving hundreds of lives and millions of dollars in vessels.
