Fairmile Motor Launch
Built by Taylor and Sons, J.J., Toronto, Ont., she was delivered to the RCN on 09 Nov 1942. 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).
In Jan 1944 and Feb 1945, Q087 was part of the 76th Ml Flotilla. Sold in 1948 to J.R. Trembly, Toronto, she was renamed Tzigane and Chief Tek8erimat.
