Hero Class #5 was rolled out this morning for painting. She will become the CCGS G. Peddle. Hero #4, CCGS Constable Carrière, has been tarped to protect form overspray, though there are clearly some wind issues.
The Vessel is named after Canadian Coast Guard Chief Officer Gregory Paul Peddle, S.C., of Spaniard’s Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador. Chief Officer Peddle and his colleagues, Senior Engineer Pierre Gallien and Leading Seaman Raymond C. Welcher, lost their lives on October, 15, 1989, when their fast rescue craft overturned in an attempt to rescue a diver off Middle Cove, Newfoundland. Chief Officer Peddle was awarded the Star of Courage.
