|YFP-10 under tow to Thule, Greenland, circa early 1961 to provide power to the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System. This ship was built as Duval (AK-177) but was canceled at the end of the war and completed as a merchant ship. She was converted to a non-self propelled power barge between 1952 and 1954 and given a protective cellular coating to insulate her against cold Arctic weather.
