- The CCGS Griffon docked in the Port of Windsor overnight Tuesday, down at Dieppe. She's a part of the ice-breaking team that run Operation Coal Shovel to keep the lower Great Lakes shipping moving during the heavy freeze.
It's a joint Canadian-US operation with the US CGC NEAH BAY and CGC BRISTOL BAY, along with her sister ship CCGS Samuel L. Risley.
CCGS Griffon is the biggest of the ice-breaking team, at 72m (235ft).
The CCGS Samuel Risley was docked down at Dieppe on the following evening. At 70m (230ft) she is slightly smaller than CCGS Griffon.
