Post subject:  vessel lost Bonavista Bay 1952

Hi: this is my first post.
I am looking for information on the schooner "Eugene and Doris" (52 ft) that according to Library & Archives Canada, was lost in Bonavista Bay on November 13, 1952. Any info pertaining to that ship from 1947 to 1952, but especially around that day.
My interest stems from the fact that my grandfather built that boat in Nova Scotia in 1924 and the family knew almost nothing about it. I have a half-model of the boat that's been passed down to me. I've been able to find out that it was registered in Harbour Buffett 1929, 1930 and in Calvert in the 1930s & 1940s. I've gathered a few stories of the boat from the descendants of the later owners, but the trail goes cold at 1947.
Any help appreciated, thank you,
Saint John, NB
