A photo of CG 83624
190424-G-G0000-1001.JPG Photo By: U.S. Coast Guard

na - No caption. Photo released October 29, 1942. Photo No. 105197F. Photo by Morris Rosenfield, New York (USCG photo). A newly launched 83-footer, the GC-624 (later 83373 & CG-14 in Rescue Flotilla 1). These wooden-hulled cutters were all built by Wheeler Shipyard in Brooklyn, New York. The first 145 cutters were fitted with an Everdur bronze wheelhouse but due to a growing scarcity of that metal during the war, the latter units were fitted with a plywood wheelhouse. A total of 230 83-footers were built and entered service with the Coast Guard during the war. Twelve other 83-footers were built for the Navy and were transferred to Latin American navies. Note the 20mm/80 on her quarterdeck and the depth charge tracks off her stern.
