Historical Documents

Much of the Master’s documentation remains undiscovered due to several ownership changes in her working days and more changes after she retired from service in 1959. The Vancouver Maritime Museum has an archive section on the Master and as we work through the old files we will reproduce some of the more salient bits of information for this section.

Sadly, no detailed engineering drawings of her original design are available. Although much of her design can be seen from the outside, some of what is seem may not be “original design” and specific details of her hull construction remain a mystery. Contributions to this page are welcome.
