We are now the proud owners of the 350 foot SS KEEWATIN, built in 1907 Goven Scotland and sailed as a passenger/frieght liner on the Great Lakes for Canadian Pacific Railways from 1907 to 1965. She was sold to a Marina Operator on Michigan in 1967 and became a floating Museum. We have now purchased her and want to move her back to Port McNicholl Canada, her home port for 60 years. We need a tug boat operator to do this job who has licensing for both US and Canada and insurance. A proven track record is also a must. She has been surveyed andcertified fit to travel.

Yellow pages? Google?
There are tug companies on the lakes. Make some phone calls. You want to talk to the company, not the operator…
I’m not sure but I believe the phrase “old girl” indicates they are looking for a volunteer? Someone looking for the glory of running a tug built in 1907.
I guess I didn’t read it carefully, it not a tug.
I think they want a free tow for publicity. From US to CA
Beggars can’t be choosers.
They want: “…a tug boat operator to do this job who has licensing for both US and Canada and insurance. A proven track record is also a must. She has been surveyed and certified fit to travel.”
This outfit has some VERY deep pockets.
They are paying over a million $ to dredge a channel to get her out of her present port in Douglas,MI on Lake Kalamazoo.

Quite right. We can take charity because the ship will be eventually owned by a “not for profit” agency, but that is not the intention…We want the best and most experienced to move her.
