The eight-year-old Canadian Coast Guard vessel, CCGS G. Peddle, has been out of service for months due to complete engine failure. The 42-metre, mid-shore patrol vessel, based in Halifax, has been out of service since June 2020 and is expected back in service later this year. It is one of nine mid-shore patrol vessels built by the Irving Shipyard in Halifax at a cost of $227 million. The two main diesel-propulsion engines will be replaced when the vessel is lifted from the water this spring for maintenance in dry dock. As the engines are beyond warranty, the repair cost will be covered by the Canadian Coast Guard.
