with HMCS Fredericton clear of the machine shop wharf, HMCS Montreal is scheduled to move to Machine Shop wharf on Mar 15. This long delay between Fredericton and Montreal is likely to allow completion of the new structure on the wharf. Charlottetown is scheduled to go into graving dock April 1
(Above) As part of the FELEX program, a new structure is being built at the machine shop wharf. this will provide closerr access to tools, and faclities to workers, as well as serve as a platform for boarding vessels. Construction has recently started, and the frame has takken shape.

HMCS Montreal in the graving dock:
Montreal Does not Appear to be getting the Extensions on the Back of the Hanger, which I belive are for LFSR Domes, Which are part of the Command and control fit on 2 of the Boats. (Halifax and Fredericton have them)
