Well, I am glad that the length issue seems to be resolved too. I was going off the Vanguard plans i have for Fraser, St. Laurent and Annapolis. Even my copy of Janes Fighting Ships 88-89 and some other books on St. Laurent class ships has the length of Nipigon/Annapolis at 371 feet so I thought that was a good number. I guess the only thing I need to worry about know are the different stern configuations for the various ships.

Sorry about giving the wrong length Russ but I guess I have had the lengths wrong for 20 plus years.....

It isn't FRAZER and it is out of focus, but it is a view into the Limbo Well.

Found this close up of HMCS Kootenay's Limbo.

The 4th and 5th photos show part of the limbo well on HMCS Gatineau
http://www.radioman.ca/1968.htm

I know they're from Restigouche-class ships but they might prove somewhat useful.

I ran around on Flickr trying to find one of those random crew taken shots of the area but couldn't find any taken on HMCS ships. Plenty of RAN and RN though... I gave my Jane's books a look too but no joy there either.

Hope they help.
-Mike

Going through photos I took on a trip to Boston in early July 1997 I came across these photos of HMCS TERRA NOVA (a RESTIGOUCHE class unit) that was a visitor to Charlestown Navy Yard NPS Park (near USF CONSTITUTION during her going back to sea again after her major reconstruction/repair on 4th July). I understand this was TERRA NOVA's last operational voyage visit ... TERRA NOVA was decommissioned on 11 July 1997. These images are scanned from color prints that I took. As you can see, I focused on "details". :smallsmile:

You can see the triple launcher to the left. I'm pretty sure this is the torpedo loading and moving hoist track. They bring them on board at the stern and store them in the room the track goes into.
