USCGC Sundew
USCGC Sundew - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - April 5, 2003
USCGC Sundew alongside Canadian Coast Guard Ship (CCGS) Samuel Risley in the approaches to Duluth, Minnesota. The Sundew was carrying Captains from several US-flag 'Lakers' to show them the ice conditions that they would face when leaving Duluth/Superior to start the shipping season.

CCGS Samuel Risley, 8800 hp, was able to open a track for the commercial ships. Sundew, as a buoy-tender, was a bit less ice-capable than the Risley.
