PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The historic Coast Guard cutter Eagle is open to the public on the Portland waterfront.
The 295-foot tall ship is arriving Friday and will be moored at the Maine State Pier as part of its 2012 cruise.
It's open to the public from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The ship was built in 1936 and operated by Nazi Germany to train cadets for the German Navy. It was taken by the U.S. as a war prize following World War II and now serves as a Coast Guard training vessel.
