The CCGS Cape Ann, Canadian Coast Guard

The CCGS Cape Ann is one of the Canadian Coast Guard’s Cape Class motor life boats which is able to self-rite itself if flipped in rough seas. She is currently stationed at Tofino. The Cape Ann was one of 28 built by Victoria Shipyards with the aluminum hull and parts cut by Brenco on our 8 x 40′ waterjet table- the largest waterjet in Western Canada.

The Cape Ann was profiled in a segment on this class of motor life boats on the television show How Things Work.
