CG Airdrops Pump to Barque Eagle

A Coast Guard aircraft delivered a replacement saltwater pump for the Coast Guard Barque Eagle's crew to effect repairs on a square-rigger's main diesel engine, Sunday.Engineers aboard the Eagle, a 295-foot barque homeported in New London, CT, noticed minor leakage from the saltwater pump Thursday through the course of hourly rounds of the ship's engineering spaces.

The leakage continued to worsen throughout the day and a replacement pump was ordered while the Eagle remained at anchor off Key West, Fla. A 33-foot Special Purpose Craft – Law Enforcement boat crew delivered a replacement pump Friday evening and engineers worked through the night to affect repairs to the ship's engine, though the part did not fit properly

Another pump was placed on order as the engineers made temporary repairs in order to arrive on time to kick off the War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemoration. Once the part arrived in Key West, the air crew from Coast Guard Air Station Miami, Fla., flew to Key West to retrieve the pump and delivered it to the Gulf of Mexico where the crew airdropped the part to an awaiting small boat crew deployed from the Eagle.
