One one submarine based in Halifax is out of the water again for a work period. HMCS Windsor has been up on the Synchrolift for the past couple of weeks. The Shed behind the synchrolift is specifically designed to accommodate a submarine, so its unclear why the boat is not inside. This might suggest minor maintenance, rather then something more serious.
