I thought it might be time for a dedicated thread on the Upholder class subs in Canadian service. I'll start it off with this; Via HP&CA: Victoria submarine torpedo test fire marks milestone (The Vancouver Sun)

1570309.bin

The fire damaged HMCS Chicoutimi, one of the Canadian military's four submarines, arriving at the Victoria Shipyards from Halifax. Chicoutimi was transported by heavy-lift ship from Halifax to the Canadian Submarine Maintenance Group (CSMG) facility in Victoria has been tasked to CSMG under the Victoria-Class In-Service Support Contract. CSMG has sub-contracted the transfer to Dockwise USA Inc., a large and experienced provider to the marine transport industry transferring Chicoutimi directly ashore (known as 'roll-off') on a cradle to a temporary hardstand. There were a least two dozen people involved in the transfer.
