Coast Guard's training ship gets an eagle-eyed look
New London — The barque Eagle's figurehead was getting a close inspection Tuesday.
U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Cary Mills and Coast Guard Yard employee Ryan Sackalosky took to the boom lift to get a closer look at the condition of the mounts of the decorative golden eagle on the front of the eponymous tall ship, which is docked at Fort Trumbull State Park. The current figurehead is due to be replaced in 2021.
Workers from the Coast Guard's maintenance yard in Baltimore, Md., are wrapping up a month in New London inspecting the ship's rigging.
Editor's Note: the equipment used to make the inspection has been corrected.
