6-grif-4-14-11-pb.jpg (69696 bytes)
CCGS Griffon on her way through the canal for buoy work in Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence.  Last summer in refit her hull was given a new coat of Inerta paint to help her slip through ice more easily.  The inerta is the black paint visible above the waterline.  It extends right down to the keel.
7-grif-4-14-11-pb.jpg (67570 bytes)
The other end of the Griffon.  The Inerta is run well above the waterline aft as the ship needs to back into ice when doing close escort work and harbour breakouts.
8-grif-4-14-11-pb.jpg (118420 bytes)
This is the Griffon's work barge.  It is shallow draft and high speed and comes with lifting gear.  This allows it to work buoys and other projects in water too shallow for the Griffon to access.  This barge replaced a standard 26 foot CG work barge.  The old barges were excellent work platforms but had a top speed of about 6 knots.  This was unacceptable for locations where long steams were required.
