PHOTO RELEASE: Coast Guard welcomes cutter to upper Chesapeake Bay
The Coast Guard Cutter Chock and its eight person crew changed their homeport from Portsmouth, Va., to Baltimore.
"The relocation of the cutter Chock to Sector Baltimore will greatly enhance the Coast Guard's multi-mission response capabilities including significantly improved ice-breaking capacity for the upper Chesapeake Bay and Port of Baltimore,” said Capt. Mark O’Malley, the commander of Coast Guard Sector Baltimore. ”It's truly a privilege to have the cutter as part of Sector Baltimore, a cutter with such a long history of superior service to the mariners of the Chesapeake Bay."
