USCGC Ingham Museum Ship in Key West, FL survived 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.


Emergency Support is being requested by the Coast Guard Foundation to support the families of Coast Guard members who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. You can help support them here!

Net Control for the SSB Net on October 21 will be W5CGC from Southlake, Texas.  The next CW Net is on October 19 from K7ZUT in Port Angeles, Washington.
