Ocean Pacific Marine has an important boat in its backyard.

The company took delivery of the Department of National Defence vessel CFAV EGRET on July 4.

The boat was towed to Campbell River from the Esquimalt Naval Base by the navy’s tug boat Tillicum.

Over the summer, Ocean Pacific will perform a complete refit of the vessel including removal of engines and jet drives, a complete paint job and a reworking of many of the vessel’s systems.

Ocean Pacific thanks local suppliers and contractors for their support in winning the contract and contributing to the project.
