PORT HURON, MICH. — A decommissioned Coast Guard ship that was sold to a private owner by the Port Huron Museum is being reopened to the public.

A Friday ceremony at the 180-foot Bramble at Seaway Terminal Bean Dock will be the first public viewing of the vessel since it was sold in January to Robert Klingler of Marine City.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the Memorial Day weekend ceremony will consist of a short, military-style ceremony with an American Legion color guard, rifle detail and a trumpeter.

Volunteer Michael Murray said the ship will be reopened to allow public access until the Brambleís hull is inspected. Admission fees havenít been determined. If the ship passes hull inspection, Klingler plans to finish restoration work to return the ship to operation.
