Caporal Kaeble V.C. handed over
The Minister of Fisheries & Oceans has officially taken over CCGS Caporal Kaeble V.C. from Halifax Shipyard. The new patrol vessel was registered in Ottawa on November 8 and moved to the Coast Guard dock at the Bedford Institute.
Launched on a foggy September 22, the boat fitted out at pier Pier 9B, and carried out trials in Bedford Basin. It is the second of the Hero class patrol boats and will leave shortly for station.
