Vessel History:

A former fishing boat, the EM in front of the name stood for Emergency Manning.  Coast Guard records usually kept the EM before the name of the vessel.  The Coast Guard chartered this vessel for patrol work.  The charter cost the Government $500 a month and conversion costs were $100,500.

The EM Euphane was assigned to the EASTSEAFRON and was stationed at Cape May, New Jersey for patrol work.
