Abandoned Navy Ship (Ghost Ship!) Explore #96
Amazing Tour Inside An Abandoned Canadian Navy Ship

This explore was just incredible. This abandoned navy ship has been on the top of my list for awhile now. Knowing it will now be dismantled and scrapped, I knew I had to explore and film this ship before she is gone forever. The HMCS Cowichan 162 HMCS was built to replace the HMCS Cowichan 146 that was built in 1940. The ship entered service in 1957 and was decommissioned in Aug 1997. This navy ship was later sold in 1999 and was to be converted into a personal yacht. The plans failed and the ship has been sitting abandoned and forgotten for years. It was sold again and is now going to be dismantled and scrapped. The ship type was a Bay Class Minesweeper. A Minesweeper is a smaller sized warship designed to remove or detonate naval mines. The ship was constructed of aluminum framing and wood planking. This is to help protect the minesweeper itself against magnetic mines. It was armed with only 1 40mm Bofors gun. It Weighs 396 tons, 152 ft in length, 28 ft beam and a Draft of 8 ft. Approx. speed of 16 kts. The ship had approx. 35 crew members on board. The HMCS Cowichan 162 HMCS was built to replace the HMCS Cowichan 146 that was built in 1940.
The HMCS Cowichan ships battle honours were:
Atlantic, 1941–45
Normandy, 1944
English Channel, 1944–45
The navy ships bell is on display at the CFB Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum.
Today we will explore this abandoned navy ship just before she is gone forever.

About me:
I have been exploring abandoned places since I was a child and now I would like to film the explores and share the videos with you.

My father took me to my first abandoned house when I was 7 years old. I remember going into the house and a old farmer came in and told us “we better watch out as the floors are all rotten and unsafe”. Ever since that day I was hooked on exploring abandoned places.

If you have a location you would like to share with me or want me to explore for you please send me an email at abandonedurbexcanada@hotmail.com and I will give you full credit for the share in the description and during the video if you choose.
