@kgvm:

FR 202 BLUE WATER can't be the ex STRANGER ex WENONAH PY-11 ex USC&GS ex USN SP-165, built 1915 by George Lawley & Son, since that yacht became on 2.10.1940 the HMCS WOLF Z-16, decommissioned 16.5.1945 and sold 15.7.1946 to the Gulf Line of Vancouver as the GULFSTREAM (from navsource).
So the other possibility, ex FLOTS BLEUS, 117 or 142 grt/1904, should be the correct one.

"White Shadow"/"FR. 206" survived the war. She was rebuilt and reengined in 1947/48 and became the motorship "Greghali", owned by Jean Moretti & Roger Oliviè, Monaco, 140 GRT. Still in Lloyd's Register 1962.
