    On my corps annual yag cruise the chief of the yag fleet was on my yag. He told me that the new orca class ships would have permanent commanding officer and a x/o. Just like on a any hmcs ship cic officer will not take command of the new orca class ships. as for the yags he said one guy is intrested in buying i think 3 of them.

    At the RMC MOC weekend for all the ROTP/RETP cadets in canada there was a presentation from the commanding officer of NOTC Venture in which they mentioned the yeag replacement project and the new orca's. Thier primary use is the training of reg force mars/mare/sea log officers of the CF. However i doubt they will be explictly used just for that purpose. Weather or not sea cadets use them...........well all i can say is mybe down the road, anything is possible..

    The Chief of the YAG FLEET? We have one of those?

    Do you mean the Reg Force Chief of NTS? (Chief Fraser??)

    He doesn't have say in who uses the boats (new or old)

    No he is not chief fraser. He said he was chief of the yag fleet and 10 boat. He told me about the orca class ships and ideas about how they would be run.
    I can't remember his name but he was are xo.

    It's too bad those big flashy boats don't look like they have an upper pilotage above the wheel house to enjoy the sun on. Best thing in the world is plotting a fix up on the pilotage in the sun.

    With the greenhouse effect of the chart table if the top is down, or the top in the way of shooting the fix if it's up, and the rain getting on your notebook, and the wind blowing stuff around...

    While it's fun to realise that you're working on one of the last open bridges in the world, I bet it's even more fun to be able to work in the comfort of an enclosed one!

    Makes me naucious as well when in really heavy seas and the waves are kicking you over from the side. Head on is kind of fun, but you get into those rolls out in the Straight some days, and your stomach just won't keep still.

    As long as I can see the horizon I am fine... I dont fair to well below decks, even on some of the calmer days. But the dreaded upchuck rarely happens, I just feel like junk.

    But I love open water none the less!

    Probably referring to CPO2 Ron Tom, the OIC of the Naval Tender Section. AFAIK, they still haven't come up with the official way ahead for what the required qualification will be to drive one of these skookum vessels. If I were a betting man, I would guess that sea cadet use will continue, but there'll be a core crew going along rather than the current "sign out the tender and go routine".

    Somewhere here on the internet there's an actual picture on these ships, not just a mock-up. They're really good pics, I just don't remember where they are. I saw them this summer when I was on Flot. If someone finds them you should post it on here for everyone.
    (I'm pretty sure the pic was taken of one of the american ships, built to the simular specs as the ORCA).
