Great Lakes Towing's published tariff is available at their website. Here is the 2008 version: http://www.thegreatlakesgroup.com/page_text/RatesConditions.pdf Ice work starts on PDF page 24.Looks like the base rate for ice breaking is $1367.00 per hour if you don't have an exclusive towing contract with GLT. Add in a fuel surcharge if #2 diesel is over 60 cents per gallon. And I'm sure there are other charges buried in the 27 page tariff as well.
