US Coast Guard Cutter Hollyhock

I'm pretty sure that I've seen the Hollyhock before and I may have even taken pictures of her but I don't think I've gotten any really nice shots of her.  So here goes.
The Hollyhock was also calling on the Saginaw River with the Alpena.  I think she had to break a way in for the Alpena and then turn around and break a way out.

She was born in 2003 at the Marinette Marine Corp in Marinette, WI (the same place where some of the Littoral Combat Ships are being built).  She replaced the cutter the Bramble and serves out of Port Huron.  She is responsible for buoy placement, ice breaking and various other duties.
