Fairmile Motor Launch - Q073
Built by Grew Boats Ltd., Penetanguishene, Ont., she was delivered to the RCN on 24 Nov 1941. While she flew the White Ensign, she was not commissioned into the RCN but instead was listed as a tender to HMCS Sambro, the depot ship for escorts (tenders were not commissioned vessels). In Feb 1944 and Mar 1945, Q073 was listed a part of the 73rd FL Flotilla. She was sold in 1945 to ACME Boat and Salvage Company, New York, USA.
