Maybe I am missing something or mistaken but...........

On the Diligence during the perfect storm? Maybe it was just a mis-understanding or a mis-print.

The perfect storm occurred around October 28, 1991 and dissipated around Nov. 4 1991

DILIGENCE VI, the current DILIGENCE was commissioned in 1964.  DILIGENCE VI is a 210', diesel powered, helicopter-capable Coast Guard cutter with 76 crewmembers.  DILIGENCE VI was originally home ported in Key West, Florida but changed homeports to Cape Canaveral, Florida in 1983.  In 1990, DILIGENCE VI was temporarily decommissioned for modernization.  In 1992, following a 28 million dollar refurbishment, a virtually brand new, rebuilt, DILIGENCE VI was placed back in commission and home ported in Wilmington, North Carolina.
