Techcoast:

Which Annapolis are you referring to? This thread is about HMCS Annapolis, of which there have been two, one scrapped, the other currently in service.

There have been four USS Annapolis, but as far as I know none of them ended up being sunk. The current USS Annapolis is a nuclear submarine so highly unlikely to be disposed of at sea when she has concluded her active service!

I think his post is just spam. I have seen it in another forum.

HMCS Annapolis is gone now. Off to be an artificial reef, there is none in Canadian service by that name.

The best resource would be Cadillac of Destoyers by Ken MacPherson,

http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Book...6x%3D0%26y%3D0

They were the last 2 of the St.Laurent derivatives.

She is on the west coast if you are interested.

If you would like to dive on one of her sister ships on the east coast. Do a google search for HMCS Saguenay.

Cheers

I served on Annapolis way back in 65 & 66 when she was still spanking new and was fortunate to log many miles with her.

I was under the impression she was sent to the scrap yard many years ago so it's actually very good news to hear that she will live on, even though her new home will be underwater.

She was a wonderful ship indeed, and I'm sure she'll also make a fine dive structure off the BC coast.

I was out on Vancouver Island in September 08, did check out what is left of the Annapolis, volunteers have done a great job cleaning her out, I remember as a kid running around that ship, (1967) one of the cleanest I was ever on, and my favorite!
My father was part of the commisioning crew. (Poidy on this forum)

This is the first memory of the Annapolis I have, 67 in HFX harbour, along side Brit and Geman ships, we had some of the crew out to our house for a BBQ, that was interesting, considering they were wartime vets....
Hope to get out to see the sinking of her, but did get some gifts for fathers day from the Annapolis

As she looked last September

Have a few over the years of the Nipigon
fella here in central Ontario made a nice model of the Annapolis, gave him a few photos (before the internet) to go on, plus dad gave him some tips, and we have a few paintings, I do like the one with the Quenn mother on the Britania, dad say he is on the bow deck somewhere?

I concur; great lines, great looks, seems they make for an absolutely great model!!!!! That pic is brilliant and the reflection is something to behold.

Liked the lines of the Counties but these were always pleasing to the eye.

Have as you may gather enjoyed viewing this class Many thanks.

Hello,dpoidy! That is a great pic of Annapolis in 67'! I noticed the Centennial flag at the bottom of the picture. Also,is that 'Sackville' at the jetty? (Before she became a museum ship and was transformed back to a Corvette?)

Hi Mike
I can remember that Sackville was not even there (HFX docks) in those days, I remember in the 70s, it was anchored out in Bedford Basin (passed it every day) as I think geological or weathership (civilian) it was a entire different look then what it is now in it's WW 2 confuguation.
These shots on the naval reunion in the harbour were posted on the net awhile back, we had the same shots from Citidal Hill, fireworks at night did not come out to good though, I still have the booklet from Annapolis they gave out, very neat, shows all the worlds ships that were there, plus they have a poster on the Haida, shows where all HMC ships were in the harbour.

To the best of my knowledge, she's still undergoing preps for sinking in Port Graves Bay off Gambier Island in Howe Sound. I believe they're planning for sometime later in '09.

Must have been RIMPAC 90. ANNAPOLIS didn't come out from the east coast until Sep '89.

Dad and I are just waiting for info if they do sink her this year, we will be there, if not, next year, If the timeing is right, this year it would be at same time as RCN Divers reunion, that would be a "good" time (Pussers anyone?)

According to that, she went down last month. From their updates in April they say the fall.

Watch the videos they have, any one who sailed on here can get to see whats left inside. Same as Nipigon pretty well.

My mistake. I see it's actually Halkett Bay. I think maybe Port Graves Bay was an earlier plan.

Has anyone heard any news about the Annapolis, heading out west in July, hopefully take a run out to her at the dock, if it is still there?

Also if anyone has any photos of her in the 1960s, would you mind shareing?

Thank you
