Coast Guard Awards CA Cutter Project

USCGC Waesche

Bay Ship & Yacht Co., of Alameda, CA, has been awarded a $26,797 contract to perform coating and related work on the USCGC Waesche.

The project involves pressure-washing and coating approximately 350 square feet of freeboard surfaces on the cutter. The hull will be coated with a zinc-rich polysiloxane primer and two coats of polysiloxane finish.

This is a 100% small business set-aside procurement. The work will be completed in January at the cutter’s home port on Coast Guard Island in Alameda.

Contract Requirements

The contract requires the contractor to restore to “clean and ship shape condition” all areas in the way of the contractor’s work, whether or not directly repaired or altered.

For example, the decks leading to work areas are to be cleaned and, if required due to unusual wear by the contractor’s crew, the work sections are to be either refinished or renewed so that they match the original condition of the decks.

The work will be performed from a floating dock, with a "bubble wrap" floating tarp to prevent waste from entering the water.

National Security Cutter

The Waesche, commissioned in May 2010, is the second of eight planned National Security Cutters (NSC). At 418 feet, the lead ship in the new Legend-class of national security cutters is designed to be the flagship of the U.S. Coast Guard’s fleet, capable of executing the most challenging maritime security missions, including supporting the mission requirements of the joint U.S. combatant commanders.

The NSC is the largest and most technically advanced class of the Integrated Deepwater System (IDS) program’s three major classes of cutters and will replace the aging 378-foot High Endurance Hamilton class cutters that have been in service since the 1960s.
