Seeing as HMCS Haida is in development, decided I had put off visiting her for long enough. She's about 20 minutes away from me, so took the opportunity to go see this weekend. Wish it was a bright sunny day,  but what can ya do?

Here are some of the pics . Exterior / deck pics first.

Nice pics!

Sure hope they include the red maple leaf on the second funnel on the in-game model.

Nice man!!

I was able to get there last year on a driving vacation to Virginia, we cut across Southern Ontario to be able to do it. And then we went to Let's Battle in Minnesota the next day. It was a good couple days.

Was there last summer, visiting all the way from Vancouver BC...

Fantastic tour. You can even go down to the boiler rooms, and the staff volunteers are very knowledgeable.

Pity that the gift shop closed early and I did not get a chance to visit, since the ship was so much fun and I could not get my feet off it. Hope to go again sometime, but it's not easy from the west coast.

I'm sad I missed out on the Let's Battle Tour that stopped in Ohio last year, as that's pretty close to me. 

Sadly, it doesn't appear that they are doing a Let's Battle Tour in 2018 at all.

Great photos! Hopefully I’ll get out to see her someday! Hope she arrives in WOWS soon, we haven’t heard much lately about her besides the naval legends.

Too bad they are letting her deteriorate by not having a covered moorage. Here is the pristine PT Boat I was on earlier this week the 658 in a covered moorage. I hate seeing them get like that.

  Nice!!  Glad to see they're keeping it in such great condition!

  What is it with the open bridges???   It must have been MISERABLE  navigating the North Atlantic and North Sea...

Nice pictures.  I visited her back in the 90s when she was moored up next to Ontario Place / The Ex in Toronto.  Had a chance to go back a few weeks ago, but my schedule was too heavy.

If anyone finds themselves out east, I would recommend visiting the HMCS Sackville in Halifax.  Nowhere near as impressive as the Haida, but still has a lot of history.

Awesome! I agree she need the Maple Leaf on her funnel in game! 

And a bench.  With a couple small tables and a few of these laying about

Given that my great-uncle was one of her captains (3rd from left, bottom row in photo), any chance I can get a deal from WG for her?  lol
