August 17th-September 19th – Mystic Seaport Museum

  This summer following our long stay in New London, we journeyed up the Mystic River to the Mystic Seaport Museum for the 1st time ever. We took it slow up the windy and narrow river, but the result was one of the most beautiful sails that Fighter has ever taken….all during this there were many people waving and saying hello, and horns blowing.

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.
