Then CHIEF MALIBU (1945)
Built by Star Shipyards (Mercer's) Ltd., New Westminster, B.C., she was delivered to the RCN on 27 Sep 1944. 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 1945 to Hamiltair Ltd., Vancouver, she was renamed Chief Malibu. The Chief Malibu sank at Princess Louisa Inlet, British Columbia in 1952.
