I'm looking for info on the USSCG Cutter Icarus launched at the Bath Iron Works in 1932. I realize that she was not all wood, but maybe someone, especially someone in Maine could help me. She was a 165' class "B" cutter of the Thetis class. There were 9 of these cutters built between 1932 and maybe 1936. All were named after gods. The ones I know of are "Thetis", "Icarus", "Pandora", "Hermes", "Galatea", "Triton", and "Electra". "Electra" was not long with the CG as she was turned over to the USN in 1935 to be converted into the the presidential yacht "Potomac". This gives you an idea of what these patrol vessels looked like.
The info on "Icarus" that I need is her designer. I have all the particulars from the CG history dept. but they did not list the designer. I would like this small part of her history to aid my father who is writing of his time in the CG before and after WWII. He served on "Icarus" until just before her patrol when she attacked and sank U-352. He had an appendicitus attack and while recovering was sent to the NYC Captian of the Ports office where they found he could type. Strange switch for a Boatswain Mate.
can anyone help me find her designer?
