Bollinger Shipyards delivered the future USCGC Angela McShan, the 35th Sentinel-class Fast Response Cutter (FRC), to the US Coast Guard on Thursday, August 1.
Commissioning of the vessel is scheduled for October 2019. It will be homeported in Cape May, New Jersey, along with sister vessels USCGC Rollin A. Fritch and USCGC Lawrence O. Lawson.
The FRC honours the late Angela McShan, the first African-American woman to be promoted to master chief petty officer in the US Coast Guard.
