The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Acushnet is shown tied up to the Coast Guard Dock on the Juneau waterfront Thursday. The Acushnet is the United State's oldest commissioned cutter, which marked its 65-years of service last week. It has the title of "Queen of the Fleet." The cutter home ported in Ketchikan and is in town for a port call, and there are no plans yet for public tours. The cutter is doing a routine Southeast waterway patrol.
