HMCS LOON 780
On 15 May 1963, Loon was placed in reserve status. The Navy turned Loon, Mallard, and Cormorant over to the Crown Assets Disposal Corporation in the 1960s. The late Winston Lyons lived in Loon with his family alongside the Sambro Government Wharf for a few years. He was a seaman in the Coast Guard Lifeboat 117 at the time. He sold Loon and she went down on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia someplace.
