WELCOME
 

DAUNTLESS is the first cutter in Coast Guard history to hold this name. Like all ships in the "Reliance" class of 210 foot medium endurance cutters, DAUNTLESS is named for an inspirational trait, this case meaning to "persevere fearlessly". This trait is further reflected in the ship motto

 "Sin Miedo" which, in Spanish, means "Without Fear".

Since her commissioning in 1967, DAUNTLESS was homeported in Miami, Florida, until 1993 when she was decommissioned and entered Major Maintenance Availablility (MMA) at the Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, Maryland. After MMA, DAUNTLESS was assigned to her new homeport of Galveston, Texas. In 2009, DAUNTLESS, once again was refitted in a major overhaul, called the Mission Effectiveness Program (MEP), also in Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, Maryland. DAUNTLESS resumed operations in November 2009, and is expected to serve for at least 15 more years.
