Coast Guard Cutter Katmai Bay Arrives At Yard
Coast Guard Cutter Katmai Bay arrived at the Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, Maryland, May 16, 2017, to start its service life extension project as part of the In-Service Vessel Sustainment (ISVS) Program. Katmai Bay is the sixth of nine 140-foot icebreaking tugs to undergo service life extension work through ISVS. The work is slated to extend each tug’s service life by 15 years and includes replacement of the boat-launching davit, habitability improvements and upgrades to propulsion and electrical systems. The cutters entered service in the 1970s. U.S. Coast Guard photo.
