The Buckthorn

These pictures are a little out of order for the day because there was quite a jumble of ships at roughly the same time.  Rather than breaking these posts up further, I decided to just keep each ship as one post.
 That being said, our next vessel is the Coast Guard Buoy Tender Buckthorn.
 She was built in 1964 by the Mobile Ship Repair Company in Alabama.  She was first stationed in Detroit.
 Later she was moved to Buffalo in 1967.
And then she was moved to Sault Ste. Marie in 1970.  She is the oldest inland buoy tender.  She had extensive repairs earlier this year.
