ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Matagorda, which, on its first operational patrol stopped a smuggling boat in the Florida Straits that was attempting to bring 25 Cuban migrants into the country illegally earlier in 2005. The organization went through a major conversion program as part of the Coast Guard's Integrated Deepwater System program. The go-fast was initially spotted by the crew of a C-130 Hercules airplane from Air Station Clearwater, Florida, 40 miles southwest of the Dry Tortugas heading north at highspeed with no lights.
