On Monday 25th March, 2024 the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Protector Class cutter USCGC SEA DOG WPB 87373 was damaged while returning from sea to the St. Marys River on the border between Florida and Georgia.

She was able to safely moor at Fernandina Beach, Fla., with assistance from other Coast Guard vessels and a commercial towing vessel. The Coast Guard reported “no injuries to personnel, no damage to other vessels in the area, no impediments to the navigable waterway and no reported environmental impacts as a result of the incident.” The incident is under investigation, the statement said.

USCGC SEA DOG WPB 87373 is an 87-foot marine protector-class cutter assigned to Coast Guard Maritime Force Protection Unit Kings Bay in the Coast Guard’s District 7. The district is responsible for a 1.7 million mile area including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and 34 foreign nations and territories, according to the Coast Guard.

She was built by Bollinger Shipyards of Lockport, Louisiana based on Damen’s Stan 2600 Design.
