CVA 447-3756

Designed as a light icebreaker and built by North Vancouver’s Burrard Drydock Company, the 2,022-ton Camsell provided search and rescue services in the Western Arctic during the late summer months

During the rest of the year, the rugged little Camsell supplied the 32 isolated light houses and lifeboat stations around Vancouver Island and cared for over 500 navigation buoys bobbing at anchor from Burrard Inlet to Cape Scott.
