HMCS Fredericton relocating

HMCS Fredericton was moved by tugs today form the Graving Dock at Halifax Shipyard to alongside at the Machine Shop wharf. The ship is part way through its 18 month FELEX (Frigate Life Extension) refit, with the hull work completed, The ships mast is still encased in staging and the bridge is tarped in. Much of the remaining work will involve electronics, controls, radars and weapons systems, all of which can be done with the ship in the water.
Due to the awkward location of the graving dock, and a stiff breeze, it took an hour's careful work to ease out of the dock and alongside.
