Pictured moored at the Evans, Coleman & Evans Dock in 1934 is the 197-ton RCMP Schooner St. Roch in her schooner rigging and powered by a 150-hp diesel engine

In June 1940, the reinforced wood-hulled schooner left Vancouver on a 2-year TOP SECRET wartime voyage resulting in the first west to east transit of the Northwest Passage.
