In 1994 the U.S. Navy resurrected a base in Everett, Washington and commissioned it as Naval Station Everett (NS Everett), the new homeport for six Naval vessels. Prior to 1994 the base had seen primary use as the homeport for a number of vessels during World War II. In the early 1940s Piers Delta and Echo were constructed to berth aircraft carriers and other warships. Piers Delta and Echo are 560 feet and 578 feet, respectively, and 46 feet wide. They are constructed out of pier decking and pile caps on timber piles. Naval vessels currently assigned to NS Everett berth at new piers on the base, while Piers Delta and Echo berth the small craft that support the larger vessels. The small craft mission includes tugboat services, base security and environmental response functions, and vessel boarding and search training for local units.
