New-Jersey-based Coast Guard Cutter to arrive in Cleveland

CLEVELAND – The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Penobscot Bay is scheduled to arrive at the Cleveland Moorings at approximately 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, December 22, 2009.

Penobscot Bay, a 140-foot icebreaking tug, homeported in Bayonne, N.J., will be temporarily assigned to the Great Lakes region to augment the eight other icebreakers that call the Great Lakes home.

Penobscot Bay’s deployment here will ensure the Coast Guard’s ability to facilitate the movement of vessels, meet the reasonable demands of commerce on the Great Lakes and assist the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with flood mitigation.
