Cutter History:

Patrol was a wooden-hulled vessel first stationed in New York Harbor. Externally she bore some resemblance to the 75-foot "six bitters" that would be built in the 1920s. The cutter was transferred to Washington, DC in 1923. She was at New York during the 1930s and was designated AB-28 in 1938.
