Great article and pictures, thanks for the link. I never read the paper here so I would have missed it.

Shows how 9/11 has touched all of us and how Whalers play such an important role in our daily lives, (sometimes unknown to us) besides how we use them for recreation.
A great testimonial to the quality, reliability, and reputation of the boats we love.
(and just a bit of what is happening here in the PNW).

Where does the USCG keep the Gradys and Contenders?

The CG probably doesn't own any Contenders or Grady's.
There are a few Grady White CG Aux. Vessels. But I've never seen one that was government property. We have a 24 Justice at my station, most FL stations do, and the nearby Port Securtiy Unit has a few 22 Raiders. Station Fort Pierce and Marine Safety Office Tampa, used to have a 25 Makos though.
I have heard that the CG is looking elswere for small boats. Many CG units are getting 27' Safe boats. aluminum hull with a foam collar. Looks like an RHI. (Rigid Hull Inflatable).
Personally I like Zodiac's. They are purely a work boat but they ride nice and can take a beating. Our 1997 24 Justice is holding up poorly compared to the 25 Sentry that it replaced.
