High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The USRC Forward was a revenue cutter constructed for the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service in 1882 by Pusey & Jones shipyard in Wilmington, Delaware. The iron-hulled vessel originally cost $72,750 and was powered by a 2-cylinder steam engine with 2 screws. She was named in honor of Walter Forward, 15th Secretary of the Treasury. Although the Forward was considered a model ship at the time of its construction, it was severely underpowered and had unreliable machinery. The cost of repairs in the first 15 years of operation was $52000. Her homeport from 1882 to 1887 was Mobile, Alabama where she patrolled the Gulf of Mexico enforcing customs laws and assisting mariners in distress.
