USCGC Ingham Museum Ship in Key West, FL
Hurricane Irma riding at the dock. She sustained mostly
superficial damage above decks. She did sustain some
minor damage to her hull above the water line when her
fenders became dislodged in the storm surge. She
suffered some bent hull plates and cracked and bent frames along with
paint damage on her starboard side. The mooring
system also sustained damage but held as designed but
will need to be replaced. Any monetary support you
can provide to purchase repair materials is appreciated.
You can donate via the Ingham website
The mooring system is expected to cost about $75,000.
The Ingham depends solely on her supporters for funding
to keep afloat! All contributions are tax deductable.
These are pictures of the interior damage.
