Historic ship docks in Morehead City

Posted: Updated:
MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. - The U.S. Coast Guard Eagle is docked in Morehead City for this weekend.

She's the largest tall ship in the U.S. military.

Referred to as "America's Tall Ship," she's used to train U.S. Coast Guard Academy cadets.

"I think the coolest part for me is just the camaraderie," Company Commander Blair Delean said. "The ship, even though it's 295 feet long, it's still small enough so that we're a little more compact in there than we're used to. You really get to know your shipmates a lot better."
