4.Feds looking for interm icebreaker
The Coast Guard is looking to procure a Light Icebreaker for use in the Great Lakes and St Lawrence river. The Vessel would also tend to navaids, and SAR Duties. The CCGS Earl Grey, based in Halifax is one variation of light icebreaker currently in use. The government is looking to procure an existing vessel, and modify it to suit, with the actual contract award for the winter 20/21 time frame.
They could just re-assign the Earl Grey to the lakes, and pick up another medium or the Heavy that Davie Proposed. The Samuel Risley is the twin of earl Grey, and is assigned to the lakes now.
