Fate: Final disposition unknown.


Built at the Star Shipyards (Mercer's) Ltd., New Westminster, BC, Leelo was one of 6 vessels built for the Fisherman's Reserve as the Nenamook class patrol craft, to replace some of the less suitable vessels. Using blueprints from a redesign of large seiners, the interiors were adjusted to suit a crew of 18. Built for the Fisherman's Reserve, they were equipped for ASW and were armed with depth  charges, ASDIC and small arms.
