The SS Master was built in 1922 for Captain Herman Thorsen. Very few ships were being built in the province during this period, (only 6 over 40′), and the Master was just about the last tug launched with a triple expansion steam engine installed.
The Master was one of a trio of wood hulled tugs that were turned out at the Beach Avenue Shipyard in False Creek. Although almost identical in design and size, the MASTER was however, 5′ shorter than the other two, the SEA SWELL and the R.F.M.

Tugs are by far my favorite boats.
My dad's early career was living and working aboard local coastline and deep sea tugs.
Dad's best friend (in his early years) was the engineer of the SS Master. My dad recalls spending time upon the Master assisting him in fine tuning the steam engines on this beautiful tug.
The Master's sister tug, the R.F.M was another tug my dad fondly remembers working on.
