I was fortunate to correspond with Don Graves many years ago when he worked for the Directorate of History in Ottawa. Over the years, he provided me with a lot of great material on the CPB boats, which saw a lot of changes over time. Some went to the Royal Netherlands Navy, the USN got four, a number were built as HSLs for the RCAF, and those initially built as MTBs were converted to HSLs. On the latter, the conversion was extensive, with the two aft sections being replaced with those of the HSLs. This is the former MTB 340:
