TheDay.com: The U.S. Coast Guard barque Eagle will spend half of each year for the next 4 years at the Coast Guard yard in Baltimore and the other half at sea, with only brief stops in its homeport of New London.

Eagle will administratively shift its homeport, temporarily, from New London to Baltimore beginning April 1 so the crew’s families can begin moving, with the goal of returning in 2018, Capt. Raymond “Wes” Pulver, Eagle‘s commanding officer, said Thursday [January 23]. The ship will go to Baltimore in September.
