The USCG is keeping the channel open for you. This video comes from the folks who produce "Boating on the Hudson, and Beyond", a great magazine and internet site.

Yes, I'm also waiting for an answer to that... Is it to help push other boats, if they stuck or something? Like a tug boat?

All right. The USCG "Wire" is a 65 foot small harbor tug, one of several built in the early to mid-60's. It is not frozen all the time on the Hudson, and during spring, summer, and fall she makes her living acting (and looking) like the little tug she is. Her homeport is up at Saugerties. Her bow fender is for the same purpose as any tugboat. In these days of foreign and domestic threats, she is also a patrol vessel on the river, another important set of eyes and ears for the USA.

Doesn't look like a bow fender to me, i bet its to keep water/ice from splashing up and freezing on deck :)
