LAKE WORTH PH 582-3353 Join the. most exclusive "Key Club" in West Palm Beach! All 125 feet of her stands proud above the water line. The Coast Guard Cutter Cartlgan Is head-high in spite of her decommission at Panama City. And proud she should be. The lady is 42 years old and her retirement leaves only six of her kind afloat. As late as 1963 there were 14 of the original 33 cutters of like vintage left in the service. Formally she's a medium endurance cutter. But to the men who loved her she's a "buck and a quarter." And a lot of boat for the money. In the "good old days" of 1927 her cost was just $90,000. Today a new cutter bites the budget for $3.75 million. A bit bigger, of course. All of the Active class cutters were built between 1926 and 1929 as a part of a massive Coast Guard expansion during the service's war with the rum runners of prohibition days. The name she bears comes from Captain Carti-gan, skipper of the Revenue Cutter Alabama in 1820. Cartigan, with an assist from the Louisiana, wiped out the last remaining pirates haunting the bays and marshes of the Louisiana and Florida coasts. In case you haven't guessed, the "buck and a quarter" comes from the 125 feet, bow to stern. And, speaking of money, if you've got $25,000 you can buy her from the Coast Guard very shortly. Her present skipper, and her last, puts high value on the Cartigan and her sisters. "It's almost safe to say they're the best bargain the Coast Guard ever got in a ship," he said. 88 KEYS TO HAPPINESS.. l IN YOUR HOME WITH V I Ml 1.1 ML JJJT TWirwr Hen's what you gat for your $2M...
