August 27, 2019 – New London
Recently we were invited in New London for an extended stay and to be on duty as a dockside attraction. Also, we did a water display for the folks attending the annual SailFest event and stayed on until August 17th for several events , but the highlight for us was being docked next to America’s Tall SHIp the USCG Barque EAGLE. It was such a sight being parked right next to her, and so the many people who visited the EAGLE, came across the dock to visit America’s Fireboat – Fire Fighter. Our stay in New London brought in over 5000 visitors and a very welcoming city and its citizens. We look to return to New London some day soon and visit with the cadets and the EAGLE again.
