ARCTIC readying for Arctic

Being prepared at Husbands shipyard for experimental use in Arctic as supply/mothership to smaller tankers.
In the early 1960’s the vessel made some re-supplying trips in the Canadian Arctic during the summer to re-supply the radar bases of the DEW line (Distance Early Warning Radar Line to detect soviet bombers), and other out ports.
