A digital photograph of the USCGC 214 - HOLLYHOCK.
USCGC HOLLYHOCK's home dock is at 2700 Omar Street, Port Huron, MI.

The United States Coast Guard Cutter HOLLYHOCK was launched Jan. 25. 2003 with primary missions of aids-to-navigation (maintenance, removal and replacement), search and rescue, environmental protection and ice-breaking.
Hollyhock is a Juniper Class Seagoing Buoy Tender - 225 feet long, displacing 2,000 long tons, and powered by two diesel engines which power a single controllable pitch propeller. Hollyhock is also equipped with bow and stern thrusters, in addition to a 60-foot telescoping beam crane. Crewed by eight officers and 42 enlisted personnel.

Notes:
Hollyhock's official website (http://www.uscg.mil/d9/cgcHollyhock/) notes:
The Hollyhock's Dynamic Positioning System, which allows a computer to take control of the engines, rudder, propeller and thrusters, can hold the ship within a 10-meter circle in winds up to 30 knots and eight-foot seas, which allows pinpoint positioning of buoys. The vessel is responsible for nearly 150 aids-to-navigation on the lower Great Lakes.
