“Crew of U.S. Coast Guard cutter shares journey as it leaves Great Lakes for the last time” –mlive

mlive has a nice photo essay of USCGC Alder’s voyage from their homeport, Duluth, to the Coast Guard yard in Baltimore, where the ship will go through a year long major maintenance availability before being reassigned to San Francisco. The crew will return to Duluth and ultimately take over a different WLB.

This is part of an on going “In Service Vessel Sustainment” program that includes a major maintenance availability for all 16 of the Juniper class buoy tenders.

A number of time lapse videos are also linked.

Thanks to Paul for bringing this to my attention.
