Storm Chaser?

The research ship Hudson sailed this afternoon in deteriorating weather. With Hurricane Ophelia churning up the Atlantic, it might be imagined that this will not be the most comfortable of trips. If she retraces her most recent survey string she will go right out in to the storm's path.

This wonderful ship, built in 1963, is still in active service for the Department of Fisheries & Oceans / Canadian Coast Guard. Her replacement will be built as part of the new government shipbuilding program, which will unfold over the next few weeks and months.
