Hollyhock on training mission

The Coast Guard cutter Hollyhock paid a visit to Duluth, coming under the Lift Bridge last night at 5:47. On a training mission in Lake Superior, it will depart this morning, taking a northern route across Lake Superior to the Soo. Notably, the Hollyhock is an exact sister to the Alder, the cutter that is due here in late fall. The Hollyhock was launched in January, 2003, the Alder in February of this year. Both are 225 feet long.
