The Canadian Coast Guard officially dedicated the lifeboat CCGS Hare Bay into service at a ceremony at the search and rescue station in Sambro, Nova Scotia, on Monday, June 6.

Hare Bay was delivered to the Canadian Coast Guard in May 2021. The vessel is the ninth of 20 locally-built search and rescue (SAR) lifeboats that are named after geographical bays across Canada.

The lifeboat can operate up to 100 nautical miles from shore and can maintain a maximum 30-minute state-of-readiness.
