Ships, again … steel is being cut for the JSS

downloadSeaspan Shipyards, in Vancouver, has begun to cut the steel for the Royal Canadian Navy’s new Joint Support Ships (JSS) which are to be almost 175 metres in length and will displace over 20,000 tonnes.

It doesn’t look much like a ship yet …

… but it is very welcome progress towards giving the Royal Canadian Navy the capacity it needs to project power on a global basis.
