Ingalls Shipbuilding Completes Acceptance Trials for Stone

Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division recently announced the successful completion of acceptance sea trials for the U.S. Coast Guard’s newest national security cutter, Stone (WMSL 758). During seal trials, the ship spent two days in the Gulf of Mexico proving its systems.
“This ship, like all of the national security cutters we have delivered, will be capable of undertaking the most challenging Coast Guard missions with great capability and endurance,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias
Ingalls has delivered eight Legend-class NSCs with two more under construction and one additional under contract. Stone is scheduled to deliver later this year and will be homeported.
NSC 9 was named to honour Coast Guard officer Commander Elmer “Archie” Fowler Stone, Coast Guard aviator number one, who made history in 1919 for being one of two Coast Guard pilots in the four-man air crew who completed the first transatlantic flight in a Navy seaplane.
The Legend-class NSC is a technologically advanced ship that meets the high demands required for maritime and homeland security, law enforcement, marine safety, environmental protection and national defence missions. NSCs are 418 feet long with a top speed of 28 knots, a range of 12,000 miles, an endurance of 60 days and a crew of 120.
