I was able to catch the Atlantic Raven arriving from sea trials. They are getting her ready to head to the west coast where she will take up a new role as a coast guard ship. The ship will join the Atlantic Eagle which is already left for Victoria.
The Atlantic Raven was built in 1999 in Denamrk, has a speed of 12.5 knots, 14,400 horsepower, measures 75 meters long, and 2,921 gross tons, with a bollard pull of 162 tons.
