Q105 - Sarnia Observer and George Lee
Sarnia: The former Second World War submarine chaser Q105 and cruise boat Duc d'Orleans will be broken up and taken to the dump. Plans by a volunteer group to rebuild the vessel to her original configuration nearly six years ago have fallen through. The wooden 112' ship was built in 1942 by Mac Craft in Sarnia. Dry rot has taken over the hull which is beyond repair. The Detroit Diesel 6-71 main engines and 2-71 generator have been removed and sold. The hull has been stripped of metal and fittings in preparation to be demolished. The group believed the Q105 would be the only remaining Second World War naval vessel still under power.
