KODIAK - The federal government is putting a former Coast Guard cutter up for auction.
   
The cutter Storis was listed for auction last week on the General Services Commission website.
   
The cutter was decommissioned in 2007, and there had been hope it would find a permanent home at the Storis Museum in Juneau.
   
Museum secretary Joe Geldhof said their next move will be to save the Storis from the scrapyard. But it likely means it won't find a permanent home in Alaska.
   
He says they are working with people from the Midwest to get the Storis, but it likely will wind up in Toledo, Ohio, where it was built.
   
The Storis had its homeport in Juneau for 10 years and spent another 50 years based out of Kodiak.
