The U.S. Coast Guard's 140-foot long icebreaking tug BISCAYNE BAY, WTGB-104, arrived in Erie at 2130 on Tuesday and anchored in Presque Isle Bay. This afternoon, the tug moved to the west side of Dobbin's Landing.
BISCAYNE BAY is one of nine "Bay class" Coast Guard cutters constructed in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and one of five stationed on the Great Lakes. BISCAYNE BAY is stationed in St. Ignace, Michigan and is nicknamed "Sentinel of the Straits," due to her homeport's location in the Straits of Mackinac.
It is unknown how long the BISCAYNE BAY will be in port.
