|Because of a crew member illness, the Canadian Coast Guard vessel Limnos arrived last night so he could be taken to the hospital. This is, I think, her first visit here at least in a long while (she was built in 1968). I stopped by to see what they were doing this summer. I excepted to talk to them about their ice breaking in the winter since that is what I thought all Great Lakes Coast Guard vessels do. And I was wrong. The Limnos is a research vessel that carries scientists to a wide variety of Great Lakes locations. They work, primarily, on water quality issues. Jocelyn Whalen is a student at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. She is spending the summer working with the technical operations department on the vessel. They operate the scientific equipment the scientists use for water quality testing. She answered all my questions quite nicely. Then ‘more important’ visitors arrived. They must have had better questions but Jocelyn, and some other crew members behind her, had all the answers for them.
