Decommissioned from the Baltimore City FD in 2015 it was eventually sold for scrap. Part of the boat was saved for future plans that never happened. Cut off at the waterline, and behind the deckhouse, the bow has sat at Sparrows Point languishing.

 

PHASE-1: We have a plan to save it and place it on a foundation at our museum. The bow, wheelhouse, forward monitors, and part of the deckhouse would remain intact. The tower with the monitor would be preserved and moved forward on the deckhouse. The Boat would be repainted with new paint in its white over the red color scheme.

PHASE-2: After it’s in place at the museum electric will be run to illuminate the boat at night as well as all of its original lighting fixtures. The Monitors will have new custom tips made and be reworked to accept 2 ½” line feeds so we can bring the Tommy back to life by pumping water through the monitors.

PHASE-3: The Wheelhouse would be restored to a time period in the vessel's life (the goal is 1956) and the remains of the deckhouse would be converted into modern rotating exhibit space covering topics on Fireboats, and Mayor Thomas D’Alessandro, Jr., BCFD Captain Smith, etc. Please contact me for further information.
