When the U.S. Coast Guard cutter NORTHWIND came to Wilmington's waterfront last December, it docked in the same spot on the Cape Fear River that the cutter DILLIGENCE had in 1792. The icebreaker was relocated from Baltimore in 1978. Visitors are welcome about the 269-foot icebreaker on weekends from one to four before the ship returns to ocean duty in August.
