Did You Know?

One of the stars of the pilot episode of Hawaii Five-0, "Cocoon," was Coast Guard Cutter Cape Corwin (USCGC 95326).

Cape Corwin appeared in her gray-and-white livery in "Cocoon" (Leonard Freeman Productions / CBS Television, 1968).

She appeared in seven episodes in Seasons 6, 8, 9, and 10. In those episodes, she wore a new livery that is still being used today.

Cape Corwin wore her new livery in all appearances after "Cocoon." (Leonard Freeman Productions / CBS Television, 1976).

So popular was she from her appearances on Hawaii Five-0 that Coast Guardsmen who served on her called her Cape McGarrett.

She was decommissioned by the Coast Guard in April 1990 and transferred to Micronesia in September of that year.
