USCGC EAGLE & SSV Oliver Hazard Perry come to Portland!

We were so united in everything we did. You leave all the petty attitude ashore. You’re united and going through the same thing, whether it’s good or bad. It’s a really great way to forge friendships.
— Naomi, 16
Being on the water in short bursts doesn’t really compare to what it’s like being on the water for six days - all the daily tasks you have to do and all the basic necessities you take for granted. I took away an appreciation for the things I normally have ashore.
— Connor, 16
