USCG Cutter James

We are honored to welcome Captain Andrew Tiongson of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter James. The Coast Guard's newest National Security Cutter, the James, is named for Hull's own legendary lifesaver Joshua James. James is credited with saving more than 540 lives from shipwrecks during his 60 year career as both a Massachusetts Humane Society volunteer lifesaver and the first Keeper of the historic Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, now the Hull Lifesaving Museum.

This impressive new cutter, the fifth of eight Legend Class National Security Cutters is the most technologically advanced cutters in the Coast Guard fleet. They are designed to perform a variety of missions and operations at sea including: national defense, port security, alien migrant interdiction, maritime law enforcement, environmental defense, search and rescue, and drug interdiction.

Rear Admiral John Korn, Assistant Commandant for Acquisitions said of USCGC James, "It seems only fitting for a cutter that will protect the lives of millions of Americans to bear the name James." The USCGC James was christened on August 16, 2014 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and it expected to be commissioned late this summer.

Hull Harbor Illumination
Saturday, July 26, 2014, 4pm - 9pm
Remembering, Honoring, Celebrating


 Purchase a Flare
It happens only one night a year... The magical, mysteriously meaningful Harbor Illumination. At sunset, the magic begins - darkness broken by pinpoints of light, silence filled with the reedy evocative tones of the bagpipe. The flares help us Honor, Celebrate, and Remember. Some people's flares honor a beloved parent, others a place of great meaning, and some just shout Yes! to the night, a silent salute to this moment of collective beauty we all create together.

Special thanks go to the event leadership, underwriters, and town representatives and other friends who lit up the evening, and our hearts. Thank you to: Chris Basler, Illumination Chair assisted most ably by Maureen Gillis; Illumination Sponsors: Bloomenthal & deBastos LLC, The Gillis Family, Granite City Electric, Hingham Institute for Savings, Pyne Keohane Funeral Home, and Sea Dog Brew Pub; Nuts and Bolts Team: Jim Dobis, Ben Fenelon, DJ Simons and Colin Roberts; Blue Cross Blue Shield/Blue Crew; Illumination Admiral John Capellupo; Illumination Captains, Dolly Bicknell, Eric Brown, Dieckmann Cogilll, Connie Crosby, Jack Gillis, Jim Gillis, Jr., Kim Greaves, Lisa Griffin, Eric Hipp, Pam Hurlburt, Amy Hyde, Scott MacDonald, Elizabeth Naylor, Phil Ricci, Amy Shaw and the residents of Spinnaker Island, Vicki Stevens, John Struzziery, Chad wolfe, and Dennis Zaia, Bagpiper extraordinaire, Tom Childs; Ed McCabe and members of the Museum's adult rowing crews; the Town of Hull's Harbormaster, Fire, Police, Public works, and Municipal Light Departments; the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Paula Marcangelo from Admiral Fagan's staff; Theresa Albano, Brian Tague, the Hull Times, and DCR for maps, photos, and PR assistance, food vendor L Street Pizza and our generous flare-selling colleagues Hull Yacht Club, Nantasket Beach Salt Water Club, and Riddles.
