Zoom Lecture: The Pendleton Rescue and the CG 36500

Learn how four Coast Guard sailors from Chatham rescued 32 men from an oil tanker that split in two during an epic storm in 1952.

On February 18, 1952, a brutal New England storm split the oil tanker PENDELTON in two. Four Coast Guard sailors set out from Chatham on a suicide mission to save 32 mariners on the sinking ship. What followed is still held to be one of the finest small-boat rescues in Coast Guard history. Boat enthusiast and racer Bob Reilly joins us to share this remarkable story.
