PHOTOS: Coast Guard cutter lifted into drydock

(Cleveland) - It's not something you see every day.

The Cleveland-based Coast Guard cutter Neah Bay has been lifted from the water for a drydock, maintenance period.

The 140-foot ice-breaking tug is homeported in Cleveland and was lifted from the water by a 770-ton mobile Travelift on Monday.

This is the first 140-foot Coast Guard cutter to be lifted by the Great Lakes Shipyard in Cleveland.
