The CAPE is historic in many respects. The history of the vessel is
well documented in both military service, and with the present owner
in private ownership for the past 21 years. Hauled Out, surveyed and
bottom painted June 2017. The vessel is predominantly original in the
configuration and propulsion. The Navy spent money overhauling the
main engines, and numerous refurbishments just prior to
decommissioning. After sitting idle for a few years, this owner has
updated some of the comforts and utility features, but without
changing the character of the ship. CAPE has recently been visited and
inspected by her former Navy Captain, and many of her crew. This was
both in Olympia, and for a second reunion where CAPE was run to Long
Beach California to participate in a second crew reunion. The perfect
vessel for the person that always wanted a minesweeper, or it could be
an attractive draw for operations for eco-tours, kayak or diving
expeditions. Coast Guard Documentation Operational Endorsements for
Recreation, Fishery, Registry & Coastwise. Used under contract for
research by the Johns Hopkins University in the '70's shortly after
her first decommissioning by the navy, she was put back into service
by the navy in December of 1984. With a cruising speed of 10 knots and
a range of 4,000 nautical miles, surveyed 2017.
