Deck of the USCGC Duane in Key Largo, Florida:
The USCG Cutter Duane (WPG-33/WHEC-33) (earlier known as the U.S.C.G.C. William J. Duane) was a cutter in the United States Coast Guard. Duane is now a historic shipwreck near Key Largo, Florida, United States. She was named for William John Duane.
She was initially commissioned as William Jim. Duane in 1936. Her name was shortened to simply "Duane" in mid-1937.
Duane was converted to an Amphibious Force Flagship in 1944. Upon completion, she was to have been taken over by the Navy and assigned the hull number AGC-6. However, this plan was dropped and she was retained for Coast Guard service.
Duane left Coast Guard service on 1 August 1985 and was laid up in Boston for a number of years.
The cutter was deliberately sunk in 1987 to create an artificial reef. It is located a mile south of Molasses Reef. On May 16, 2002, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
