Coast Guard Cutter Eagle visits Boston Harbor

The US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle entered Boston Harbor yesterday. Below is a photo of her as she made her way around fan pier:

The ship will be on display in the Charlestown Navy Yard this weekend. Originally named the “Horst Wessel”, Eagle was actually built in Germany and commissioned in 1936. It was then taken by the United States as a war reparation in 1946. Aside from the occassional trip to places like Boston, the Eagle sits in its home port at New London, CT. I once took a photo of the Eagle at its home port as I was chugging by in the Acela train to New York City: she can be seen in this post.

I did not have the Nikon with me, so this picture (taken with my phone camera) isn’t as sharp as I would have liked. Here is a broader shot of the Eagle at Fan Pier:
