Canadian Coast Guard Ship Griffon in the Welland Canal
- Paul Beesley
1-griff-4-02-10-pb.jpg (87277 bytes)
Canadian Coast Guard Ship Griffon passes the Maritime Trader below Lock 2.
2-griff-4-02-10-pb.jpg (143675 bytes)
The Griffon received a new crane last year, and the work barge is relatively new as well.
3-griff-4-02-10-pb.jpg (90287 bytes)
Once past the Trader the Griffon launched its work barge to carry out seasonal buoy maintenance.  There are two green buoys between Locks 1 & 2.  Among other things their position is verified to ensure they mark the edge of the channel.
4-griff-4-02-10-pb.jpg (105176 bytes)
Until recently, work barges were completely open to the elements.  This newer model offers shelter to the crew when not actually working a buoy.
5-griff-4-02-10-pb.jpg (123811 bytes)
Previous work barges were phenomenally slow.  This model is speedier and cuts down on transit times to distant work sites.  These small craft are used for areas where there is not enough water for the Griffon or Risley to safely work.
