Fisherman's Reserve Vessel BC LADY FY07
Built by Joe Tara of Ladner, BC, she was chartered by the Crown on 10 Jun 1940 for $419.00/month. She entered into service on 24 Dec 1940 in the Fisherman's Reserve. BC Lady was later transferred for duty to the RCAF. During her time in the Fisherman's Reserve, BC Lady ran aground on the rocks at the end of Whiffen Spit at Sooke, B.C. William (Bill) Sheilds had asked the skipper if he wanted him to take the BC Lady in to the harbour as he was familiar with the waters having lived in Sooke his whole life but the skipper declined. She was floated off the rocks at high water later that day.
