Here is a little bit of history about the "Sundew," which frequently makes an appearance at Applefest. Have you seen it yourself?
Today in Chequamegon history: happy birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter "Sundew," launched this day in 1944. A familiar sight among the Apostle Islands for many years, the Sundew compiled a distinguished record of rescues and aid to mariners in distress before her retirement in 2004. A small sampling appears in this U.S.C.G. history: " In 1947, Sundew saved the lives of 28 crewmen on the freighter Jupiter, and towed the 3000-ton vessel to safety... In 1958, Sundew engaged in one of her most noteworthy missions when she was sent to the aid of the Carl D. Bradley who had cracked in two and was sinking. Sundew braved waves of 30 to 40 feet as she rescued the only two survivors of the 35-man crew from a wooden life raft where they endured the elements for nearly 14 hours.... During the fall of 1962, a 40-foot patrol boat from the Charlevoix Lifeboat Station began to take on water during a storm. The 3-man crew was forced to beach themselves on the north shore of Little Traverse Bay. Sundew was dispatched to tow the boat off the beach, hoist it aboard, and return it to Charlevoix. In the winter of 1962, as Sundew was returning to Charlevoix after retrieving Aids to Navigation, she was ordered to change course and assist a 64-foot tug that had grounded itself on the southwest side of Beaver Island. After snapping three tow hawsers Sundew finally pulled the tug free and towed it to Detroit." One of the ship's more unusual missions occurred in 1963 when, "....Sundew got underway on a mercy mission of transporting five tons of bailed hay and a large supply of grain to Beaver Island in northern Lake Michigan for a herd of 150 Herefords, a type of hardy red beef cattle, whose food supply was running dangerously low. It took Sundew 11 hours to break its way through thick ice from Charlevoix to the harbor of St. James, a distance of 32 miles, where the cutter unloaded the cattle’s cargo." Local residents may remember a dramatic episode in March, 1984, when the Sundew came to the aid of the Bayfield fish tug "Energy" which was stranded for three days in the ice off Devils Island. The boat's owner, Cecil Peterson, later remarked, "We thought we'd be home in three or four days with a catch of fish. If it wasn't for the Coast Guard and the Sundew, we would have been out there until the ice melted a few months from now." After her retirement, the Sundew was given to the city of Duluth, in hopes that she would be turned into a museum ship. That goal failed to materialize, and in 2009 the boat was sold to private owners. The Sundew is still berthed in Duluth, and has her own Facebook page, where readers can keep informed of plans for her future. ----------- Collected and edited by Bob Mackreth for the Apostle Islands Historic Preservation Conservancy, a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the historic heritage of the Apostle Islands region of northern Wisconsin.
