I took this photo around the summer of 1985 in Halifax Harbour. From The Friends of Hydrograpghy: [i">The CSS Baffin was built by Canadian Vickers in 1956 as one of the most modern hydrographic survey vessels in the world. She was accepted by the Department of Mines and Technical Surveys on January 22nd, 1957. She was 90 meters (LOA) with a displacement of 4986 tonnes and carried a Lloyd's Ice Class I registration. With a complement of 57 crew and accommodations for 29 scientific staff, she had an endurance of 76 days at a cruising speed of 10 kt. Originally fitted with 6 launches, 2 helicopters, 2 landing barges, she served primarily along Canada's eastern seaboard and in the Canadian Arctic as well as numerous missions to other parts of the world. She was decommissioned in 1990.[/i">

This is a beautiful picture of the Baffin. I sailed on her in 1963.
