Former CCGS Wilfred Templeman put up for auction

The former Canadian Coast Guard Reserach vessel Wilfred Templeman has been renamed 2011-01 and put up for auction. The minimum bid is $400,000, and the closing date is Aug 28, 2011

The ship built in 1981 at Pictou, Nova Scotia is 165 feet long. The Templeman has been involed in many missions over the years bu one that stick in my mind is the 1995 Turbot War, when the Wilfred Templeman white at the time escorted the Spainish vessel Estao to St. John's along with other Coast Guard and Fisheries vessels.

Photo show s her tied up in St. John's with the name no longer visible.

Thanks Mac for letting know about this
