Trip out on the USCGC Ice Cutter – Alder

Today, Marcel was fortunate enough to be able to go out on the Alder. For those of you who do not know the ship, she is a 225 foot Juniper Class vessel whose home port is here in Duluth. According to the Coast Guard’s ¬†website the Alder is used by the Coast Guard for aids to navigation, ice breaking, law enforcement, and search and rescue. The Lake Superior Marine Museum Association hosted the event on the ship.
