CCGS Kolpit Hopson 1752 to IEL

Presumably with the sale of Shelburne ship repair set to close shortly, the CCGS Kolpit Hopson 1752 was towed to IEL in woodside, arriving this morning.

The Ship was formerly named CCGS Edward Cornwallis, and was renamed as part of an extensive life extension that saw the ship re-powered, and its buoy handling derrick replaced with a crane. The refit began at Shelburne Ship repair in January 2021, and the new name for the ship was announced last march.
