Chesapeake decommissioned

On 6 January 1971, Lightship Chesapeake (LV-116) was decommissioned. After serving for the National Park Service as a seagoing environmental education classroom, she was handed over to the city of Baltimore in 1982. In 1988 Chesapeake became part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum, now the Historic Ships In Baltimore museum and is moored at Pier 3 in Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
