KETCHIKAN, Alaska - As part of the 2011 Canadian U.S. Dixon Entrance oil spill response exercise, the crews of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Anthony Petit and the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Bartlett practiced deploying their vessel of opportunity oil skimming systems in Refuge Cove five miles north of Ketchikan Sept. 21, 2011. Severe weather conditions in Refuge Cove limited the time the two crews had to work with the response equipment and the shipboard exercises were concluded early due to safety concerns.
