Out for maintenance at the Burrard Shipyard

In April 1971, the World Ship Society, finding it increasingly difficult under its charter to maintain the MASTER, turned her over to a newly formed group called the Society for the Preservation of the Steam Towboat Master (in May, 1985, the name was changed to the ‘S.S. Master Society’), who have been her exclusive owners and operators ever since. Many thousands of hours are put in each year to maintain her in seaworthy condition.
