March 31

The heavy lift ship Tern is moving tonight to an anchorage in Bedford Basin. When she is in position, and all fitments have been secured, she will submerge her main deck. Then, weather permitting, she will load HMCS Chicoutimi, and pump out her tanks to return to seagoing draft. The damaged submarine will be transported to Esquimalt for permanent repairs.
Chicoutimi , the former HMS Upholder, experienced a serious fire on her delivery trip to Canada, October 5, 2004, that killed one sailor and injured several others. The sub was towed back to England and finally delivered on another semi-submersible ship, Eide Transporter, arriving in Halifax February 1, 2005
