CCGS George R. Pearkes

Sept 5, 2012 proved to be a great day for ship watching in St. John's. One ship I photographed was the Canadian coast Guard Ship George R. Pearkes arriving. she was third to enter the harbor, the first two being the Geo Caribbean and the Thor Omega, which I will post photos soon..

The Pearkes commissioned in 1986 and built in 1986 is a type 1100, light icebreaker and buoy tender, she is 272 feet long. The Pearkes operted in the Pacific and quebec regions, before being transferred to the Newfoundland and Labrador region in 2004.
