Do you know if the USCG 56022 cable boat home station was Cleveland Harbor? My father ran the cable boat from Cleveland from 1967-1972.

In ''77 the Aids to Navigation(ANT) teams for our area were out of Buffalo but the main team commander could have been in the District office in Cleveland. Today there are only three ANT Teams Buffalo, Detroit and Duluth. 56022 could have been temporarily based anywhere but would have gone back to the district for maintenance and haulout in the winter. In 67-72 it might have been based out of Cleveland.

USCG 56022 was stationed out of Base Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I was aboard the vessel when it sank in 1977 along with BM1 Perry and MK2 Hull.

Palmer could you contact me I have some additional questions on 56022 that I would like to talk to you about.

I have a photo of 56022 when it was in active service. Late sixties I believe. The USCG Historian said the photo is the only one they have on file. Let me know if you would like a digital copy for you're records.

Yes, I would appreciate receiving a copy of the photo of 56022 and would like to include it in the article on this website. Please send it to my email: –  JimKennard  May 16th, 2012 at 4:35 PM
