SEATTLE - The Coast Guard says the icebreaker Healy is returning to its home port in Seattle.
The return Thursday completes the summer scientific mission that included mapping parts of the Arctic Ocean sea floor in cooperation with a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker, the Louis S. St-Laurent.
Back in Seattle, the 420-foot Healy will go into a drydock for maintenance.
