Calgary Catalina

Hello fellow mariners past. I have been trying to find information about MV Calgary Catalina, a seismic vessel aboard which I sailed in 1969. She was a refitted and repurposed seiner originally named FV Golden Scarab. The Scarab had sat at Purdy Brothers wharf in Halifax for roughly 2 years before it's makeover. I joined her in May, 1969 and left her to join Fundy Gypsum in September of that year, and have always been curious about what her fate might have been. I've included a photo of the Catalina dockside in Halifax taken from the Fisheries Research Board, where I worked prior to signing aboard as 'assistant navigator', aka 'jack-of-all-trades'. Hope this rings a bell...
