The Coast Guard Cutter Bailey Barco transits Wrangell Narrows last week. The 154-foot Fast Response Cutter is homeported in Ketchikan and was commissioned in Juneau last summer. The cutter is the 22nd Sentinel-class Cutter in the Coast Guard fleet. The Sentinel-class cutters are lightly armed patrol vessels with a crew of approximately two dozen sailors, capable of traveling almost 3,000 nautical miles, on five-day missions. The cutter is a multi-mission vessel intended to perform law enforcement, search and rescue, fisheries and environmental protection, as well as homeland security tasks.
