United States Coast Guard Tug Boat Model

September 29th, 2010

The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is one of seven different branches in the armed services of America. It was established on August 4, 1790, by Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton and from that day forth has kept the waters off the shores of the Untied States secure. Matter of fact, the USCG is the United States’ oldest continuously operating seagoing service. Presently, the Coast Guide functions under the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and serves primarily to carry out maritime safety, security, and stewardship. Also, the USCG is one of the only divisions of the U.S. military that has the authority to undertake missions both domestically and abroad. This becomes obvious when it is the Coast Guard who often responds when an SOS call is sent out from a ship in distress.

Tug Boat From The USCG

Since the United States Coast Guard is charged with the double duty of protecting the waters inside and outside of the United States, they employ a variety of ships. Yet, one of the most versatile and visible ships in the Coast Guards fleet is the USCG tugboat. More often than not, it is the Coast Guard who must tow ashore distressed ships that can no longer navigate under their own power. Thus, the tugboat is the best possible tool for making sure that damaged ships are able to reach shore safely. Furthermore, it is the Coast Guard’s tugboat that bears the responsibility for towing out to sea larger ships that patrol the oceans, including naval destroyers. Seeing that the USCG’s tugboat is one of the hardest working and most recognizable ships in the armed services of the United States, why not include it as part of your model ship collection?

Authentic Coast Guard Tug Boat Replica

Creating A Perfect United States Coast Guard Tug Boat Replica

Fortunately, Handcrafted Model Ships (HMS) has undertaken the task of fabricating an incredibly accurate replica of the CG’s tugboat. This way, not only will members of the Coast Guard and their friends and family seek to own HMS’s Coast Guard tugboat, but serious model ship collectors will as well. The tugboat was constructed as an exact 1:35 scale model relative to the actual boat the Coast Guard employs. Moreover, HMS built its USCG tugboat replica using the official plans and pictures of the tugboats that serve today. Finally, the replica was painstakingly painted to the same specs as the real boat. As always, the model ship comes fully assembled and ready to be displayed with a complementary base-stand.
