Then QUETZAL II (1948)
Built by Hunter Boats, Orillia, Ont., she was delivered to the RCN on 23 Aug 1943. 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). Sold in 1948 to Francis Farwell, Hamilton, Ontario and was re-named Quetzal II, Arara and Aruba.
