Sea Cadet Ship Grayfox To Remain In Port Huron

Posted: Updated:

PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Ship Grayfox is expected to remain based in Port Huron after resuming training at the beginning of this month.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports a board of governance has taken over management of the ship following the September death of Bill Barnhardt, its captain. Board chairman Jim Semerad says training will continue into the foreseeable future. 

Semerad says a review in October determined that the ship has at least 15 years of useful life.

The decommissioned Navy torpedo retriever originally called the Swampfox was brought to Port Huron in 1997 by Barnhardt, Semerad and others. It functions as a training platform for the U.S. Navy Sea Cadets, a program for those ages 13 to 17.
