Seattle’s Vigor Shipyards is deep in shipbuilding’s hottest race and they are in it to win.  The victor of the battle will come away with an 8-billion dollar contract to build 25 U.S. Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Cutters.

PSMHS board member and Vigor staff member U.S.C.G. Rear Admiral (Ret.) John Lockwood will present Vigor’s idea to propose a uniquely designed ship to the Coast Guard that is considered to be the next generation military vessel.

 

Admiral Lockwood is closely connected to our area, having served as Commander of the U.S. Coast Guard’s 13th District from 1993 to 1996.  The 13th District covers Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.  After commanding a number of posts following his assignment here, John and his wife Cyndee retired in the Northwest.
