Cutter Sherman (WHEC 720). Commissioned 1968. The 378' High Endurance Cutter (WHEC) remains my favorite of ALL Coast Guard Cutters, past and present. They will soon be gone and are being replaced by the 418' National Security Cutters, one of which I am visiting this date, the new USCGC Munro (WMSL 755). I was fortunate to have sailed aboard the previous USCGC Munro (WHEC 724), 1982-85 which is now home ported in Juneau, AK but will soon be decommissioned.
