This 140-foot Bay-class Cutter operates as an icebreaking tug. Today, it passed by the lighthouse while steaming down the Hudson River, breaking up ice in the commercial navigation channel. Coast Guard ice-breaking operations are vital for keeping the river channel open for fuel barges delivering heating oil to upstate New York.
