NEW LONDON, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – A tall ship with a rich history could be just the thing for you and your family this summer, as WCBS 880’s Mike Xirinachs reports in the latest One Tank Trips installment.
The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Barque Eagle is a sight to behold.
“It’s 295 feet from the tip of the stern all the way to tip of the bow. And the masts, the forward two masts, the main and the fore-mast are 145 feet high,” operations officer Chris Hensley told Xirinachs. “She’s one of the biggest in America.”
