The USNSCS Grayfox (TWR-825) is currently the largest ship owned by the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps. She is homeported in Port Huron, Michigan and is used by the USNSCC for shipboard training. The USNSCS prefix stands for "United States Naval Sea Cadet Ship."
The Grayfox started life in 1985 as a 120-foot Torpedo Weapons Retriever, one of ten. She was assigned to the United States Navy's Atlantic Undersea Testing and Evaluation Center (AUTEC), Andros Island, Bahamas, where her job was to launch and retrieve test torpedoes and targets. Eventually, as torpedoes became less of a threat, the Navy decided to mothball her in 1995. She was then sent to Green Cove Springs, Florida, where a group of sponsors found her and decided the Sea Cadets needed their own ship to train on. The Secretary of the Navy transferred the USNS Grayfox to the USNSNCC on August 15, 1997.
The ship, at the South end of the Blue Water River Walk along the St. Clair River, functions as a training platform for the U.S. Navy Sea Cadets - a program for teenagers ages 13 to 17 who participate in leadership and seamanship training.
The Ship also is used for Canadian Sea Cadets, Boy Scouts, training for U.S. Navy Reserve and the Michigan Navy Recruiting District and Coast Guard operations in the area.
