    Hospital ship for Canada

    Give the task to Federal Fleet to run and have Davie build it. I doubt the RCN wants anything to do with it.

    I would imagine like the 280's 76mm they will be returned to the manufacture for credit on future purchases or paid outright. Some of the CWIS will probably be retained for the tankers.

    I guess CFAD never read Hatchers notebook in relation to small arms ammo.

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    I think they were pretty clear in why the project is delayed. What they don't mention is the years spent getting the former site owner to remediate the area, stabilizing the sinking jetty and the EA that was a nightmare as its a refueling station, in the Arctic. To do any construction up there...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The former member was the buffer in charge of the lines, sails etc, typically a MS or PO2 more than likely.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    Yep I heard all this before from people who never walked in their shoes and who seem jealous of their lifestyle and where they live. Cool be judgmental, I'm sure they care.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    A lot of fishermen are well off however many are not dependent on the fishery and area they fish. Some 100% deserve and need EI. The issue back home in NL is that many communities are so small, there is not a big option to find a job after their season ends. Its easy to say like some do for them...

    The public would never accept a paramilitary CCG and the members of the CCG would never go for it.

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    So we don't generally limit our ships to a few areas we go places. The ships were designed as Arctic and OFFSHORE patrol vessels and designed to operate in tropical conditions because the RCN has deemed that we may have to operate there. These ships are exactly like a pickup truck and actually...

    I don't know if you get this but having a CG crew onboard running a CG AOPV for an Op Caribe with a RCN crew manning .50 Cals is not going to happen for all kinds of reasons. We also don't provide a boarding party during Carib's, the MOU with the US utilizes a embarked USCG boarding party for...

    Most of the time its just anchoring and the team deploys from small boats to either deploy the REMUS or divers to investigate and destroy the targets after data processing.

    I assume any overseas deployments will be after the current defects are rectified, they already have done OP Caribbes so they were successful at that. It would be nice to have a AOPV to back up and support the Kingston Class on certain deployments as we usually get poor support.

    They can certainly act as a platform for the REMUS although they don't have degaussing. There is talk of sending one overseas to act as a support ship to the Kingston class.

    100%. I wish I've been in a AOPV for many of the times I been to the Arctic. Once the technical issues are rectified they will be sailing a lot. Would love to see an expansion to the deep water port in Iqaluit to include jetty space and offices and warehouses for a couple of AOPV's and Kingston...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    We do sometimes reach out to our NATO allies for supplies, engineering support at times. Just last summer had to go our German support ship to source chemicals for our water as our stores system ashore couldn't do anything for us.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Yes fully aware about RPP and the implications of not having a good seal. It boggles my mind that after many years of enforcing the policy on ships that's its been thrown out. Just a cursory look at different ships on social media it appears many ships are also allowing full on beards.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Yes they are doing health and safety audits, in fact I have one coming up. Pmed comes in periodically to check water test logs as well. We also have NETE coming in to do safety audits along with the fire hall. Before the new dress regs there was a number of people claiming to follow the Norse...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Well that's good clarification, FW quality is always a worry for me. I did hear that there may be a filter system going in to mitigate things until the valves can be changed and the later ships will be have the corrected specs.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Buds I couldn't give a flying f*ck about things you seen Irving do and I could quote many things I saw FMF Cape Scott has done of a similar nature over the years. I'm going by first hand information I personally have experienced with lead in FW systems on ships that I have been on and first hand...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Apparently everyone has put in CF 98's and 663's. I had a number of high lead incidents on the ships I was on, usually when the jetty connection is not flushed properly or water being stagnant in our brominater. Flushed then system, tested and carried on. Sounds like the valves used probably...
