My Fair Lady II was designed by Ed Monk Sr. and construction began in a West Vancouver shed in the backyard of Hugh and Rose Libby.  This was only their second attempt at boatbuilding, having built a 19' runabout prior to this project.

Construction began in 1959 and was finished in 1961, when she was registered. She is still powered by her original GM 6-53 diesel.

The Libby's took her north to Ketchikan, Alaska in 1964, and the current owner retraced his course in 2010. She has been no stranger to the North & Central BC coast ever since.

Since purchasing her in 2008, the current owner has refinished the mahogany exterior as well as most of the interior.  Upgrades to the electrical system and electronics have been carried out as well.
