Fate: Unknown

 

Built at the Star Shipyards (Mercer's) Ltd., New Westminster, BC, Nenamook 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. The 1942 film Commandos Strike at Dawn was filmed in the Vancouver area using Prince David and Nenamook.
