The new patrol boat CCGS Caporal Kaeble V.C. put on a speed demonstration in Bedford Basin this afternoon. Now fitted out and commissioned to the CCG, the boat is conducting familiarity trials before heading out for Quebec this week.
The boat has an impressive turn of speed, and makes very little noise- good for sneaking up on smugglers and the like. Her wake is another matter. In wake sensitive areas of the Great Lakes in particular, any speed runs will certainly bring notice.
