2/3 of HMCS Harry DeWolf to roll out

today and tomorrow, the mid and stern superblocks are scheduled to be rolled out. The Middle is to be done first, and it already placed on the transporters. The Stern will follow.

The bow superblock sub assemblies were constructed in Woodside, and have been delivered to the yard to be assembled into the third superblock. Additional work will continue in the yard. It also appears that a Tower crane is being installed on Pier 8 to facilitate this work.
