This painting was a custom order from the crew of the Coast Guard Ship
'Ouachita' as a retirement gift for their Chief Engineer, Chief Dan Gray.

"The Brave Coastie of the Coast Guard Cutter Ouachita in Chattanooga
Tennessee want to wish their shipmate Chief Dan Gray,
fair winds and following seas as he leaves the unit after many years of hard
work and dedication serving as their Chief Engineer.  
Chief is an avid outdoorsman and they wanted to give him something
to commemorate all his years of Honor, Respect and Devotion to duty
while serving aboard the ship.   
This piece represents his Home, family and friends that wish him the best."
"Thanks Chief."
