About the Book
This book is a personal reflection, in words and pictures, of the history of the former Canadian hydrographic survey ship and naval vessel, the CSS Acadia, currently the largest artifact at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax, NS.
Although I have a long association with the CSS Acadia, my working career, as a projects manager for a major oil company distanced me from the sea and ships. However, I have "messed around in boats" since childhood and currently sail in Halifax on Aurora, a 36 foot sloop. Other interests range from HO model train collecting, growing grapes for homemade wine, volunteering and travelling with my wife Kay.
