He's right in that you guys shouldn't post some big ass image. You can re-size it if you want to post it.

Congress needs to replace the 378 footers asap.
I assume you mean Charleston, SC. Yeah, but most military agencies probably wouldn't allow their stuff to look so run down. My bro was in the Navy for 6 years, and I've never seen a Navy ship in my life that showed that sort of raggedness. You can get rust off metal and make it look like the ship is new. Paint job, scrubbing the rust off, etc... It's simple ship maintenance that they should be doing. Then again, it is the Coast Guard. :P

Right, South Carolina, sorry.
Its hardly that simple.
Especially when these ships are deployed for so long and operating out of foreign ports with primitive conditions.
Ships at sea actually working look a lot different than ones you may have seen at a port.

Simple wasn't the best word to use there. I should have said "basic" maintenance that needs to be done.

They could easily scrub that rust off; even at sea but we also don't know the whole story. Maybe those ships are in such demand that it is near impossible to pull them for "beauty" maintenance.

Re: Pics for Sharing

And they wont do any beauty maintenance while they are doing drug interdiction or SAR or ATON. Paint brushes dont save lives nor do they catch coke boats.


To clean those rust streaks at sea you need/need to do to do the following:

Have good weather.
Have calm seas.
Stop the ship.
Find the rust source.
Put a man in a boatswains chair over the side of the ship with a grinder and hit the source of the rust. You must also post a man to watch the grinder in case he ends up in the water, not to mention the NCO to oversee the operation.
Keep in mind that there are no dedicated painters on a ship so you are pulling a men off their actual duty.
Paint the area you ground with red lead. (this is a red colored rust inhibiting paint)
Wait for the red lead to dry.
Paint over the red lead with blue death. (blue death is a highly toxic marine paint that allows the color coat to stick to the red lead)
Wait for the blue death to dry.
Paint the color coat over the blue death.

I agree it is a bit much to do at sea but on the same hand and I grew up in Newport RI I have never seen a US Naval or Coast Guard Ship look that bad before and I have seen a lot; albeit the most I saw were in port.
