|The research vessel 2009-02 alongside in Victoria Harbour. She was formerly the Canadian Coast Guard vessel TSEKOA II, but in 2009 she was decommissioned, renamed 2009-02, and put up for sale. She was recently purchased by the University of Victoria, who will be converting her to hybrid electric propulsion. She will also be lengthened by 6 metres to add a science lab and additional accomodation for crew and scientists. The University will also be providing her with a new name.
