Description

Bluejacket US Revenue Cutter

The US Revenue Cutter Service (USRCS) was a predecessor to the modern United States Coast Guard. Established in 1790 by Alexander Hamilton, the USRCS was responsible for enforcing customs and trade laws, conducting search and rescue operations, and protecting the nation’s maritime interests.

Revenue cutters were a type of ship used by the USRCS for conducting patrols, intercepting smugglers, and enforcing maritime laws. These vessels were typically armed with cannons and manned by trained crews who patrolled the coastline and waters of the United States to ensure compliance with federal regulations.

The US Revenue Cutter Service played a crucial role in defending the nation’s maritime borders, combating piracy and smuggling, and providing assistance to mariners in distress. Revenue cutters were also involved in law enforcement, humanitarian missions, and environmental protection efforts, establishing a proud tradition of service and dedication to duty.

In 1915, the US Revenue Cutter Service was merged with the US Life-Saving Service to form the United States Coast Guard, a unified maritime agency with a broader mission of maritime safety, security, and environmental stewardship. The legacy of the Revenue Cutter Service lives on in the modern Coast Guard, which continues to uphold the values of service, professionalism, and dedication to duty that were established by its predecessor over two centuries ago.

The Bluejacket US Revenue Cutter kit includes laser cut wood boards, a full set of fittings, wood planking, masts and yards, plans, diagrams and instruction manual.
