    Well as I've got 121 days left before boot camp, I'm looking through a lot of the stations on the East Coast. A lot have pages to look around on and get a feel for what they're like and what they tend to do, but I can't find much of anything about Woods Hole. I only know it's got a few 110 ft boats, a buoy tender, 25 footer, and an 87 footer (the Hammerhead) that I saw at Newburryport MA this summer. It seems like an awesome place to get stationed, and it's not too terribly far from home. So anyone know anything about it besides what I already know? It's one of my top choices. Well, for now...

    Thanks

    -Conor

    Hey Conor, I can not speak for the station but Woods Hole is awesome! You say you are from the area so I assume you already know this. It seems like it would be a great place to be stationed.

    You won't be choosing units, you'll be choosing Districts in boot camp. Unless you're a Reservist.

    That is true... Probably should have worded that differently.

    I got Wood's Hole out of Boot Camp. I've been on both 110's homeported here and couldn't have gotten a much better spot in terms of my command and the work I get to do, not to mention how awesome the area is, I personally love the small town atmosphere of the area.
    That being said, you don't get a lot of choice out of Basic. You can put down D1 and say you want a station, that would probably give you your best shot at landing in the area, but it could also send you up to Maine, so don't pin your hopes on getting STA Wood's Hole or the Mighty Warship TYBEE out of basic.
    Try to get a cutter, big boats are great for travel but patrol boats are great for the responsibility you'll have. It really is great work.
    Your passion for what you do will set you free.

    I was the OIC of Station Woods Hole from 1987-1991. The station was located within the Group. There was ATON team, several patrol boats, and a Bouy Tender. All I can tell you is that it was a great place to be stationed.

    I'm currently stationed in Newburyport. I love it here. I know that doens't answer your question though. But, just thought I'd share.
