Shipbuilder to hold ceremony for Coast Guard cutter
Published: May 15,2013
PASCAGOULA — Ingalls Shipbuilding will hold a keel authentication Friday in Pascagoula for its fifth U.S. Coast Guard National Security Cutter James (WMSL 754).
Ingalls President Irwin F. Edenzon and David Blackburn, director of the USCG Project Resident Office Gulf Coast, are scheduled to speak at the 10 a.m. event at the shipyard.
The security cutter is named for Joshua James, who is credited with saving more than 600 lives along the New England coastline during a nearly 60-year career in the 1800s with the U.S. Life Saving Service.
Charlene Benoit, James’ great-great-niece, is the ship’s sponsor and will authenticate the keel has been “truly and fairly laid.” Her name will be welded onto a steel plate that will be part of the ship.
