A few days ago I posted this twilight view of Service Boat No. 1.

So, I hope she ‘s more defined by these shots from a bit later in the port of Montreal, as she passes Toronto Express.

 

Ocean Macareux (translates as “Ocean Puffin”) follows the grain elevators on her way to –maybe–

attach some rendering. . . .

Farther along, a spud barge moved by GFFM‘s

Vent Polaire (tr. Polar Wind) seems standing by, assisted by this very

shallow draft prime mover.

Over by the Beauharnois Dam, Deschenaux (tr. Channels) stands by.

Click here for more info on the Beauharnois generating station.

Anyone know where and when Deschenaux was built?

Farther upstream yet, in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, it’s Circle Polaire (tr. Polar Circle)

And closing out this post, Ocean A. Gauthier here heads downstream to assist Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin return to a floating condition. I believe she’s still undergoing repairs in the port of Johnstown ON.

Enjoy three views of Ocean Echo II with different contexts:  the Iroquois Dam,

a scenic late summer meadow, and

the Iroquois lock itself.  Click here for pics dating from the dam and lock construction.

A  lot of Ocean Group tugs are included here, but Ocean Cormoran is not . . .

Although blue-hulled, VM/S St. Lambert was built for the SLSMC.

 

Ocean Macareux is a product of GFFM LeClerc, which I visited a few months back, and was on the wall in the old port of Montreal.

And last but not least, Denis M is a 1942 product of Russel Brothers.  Here she is on the wall just below Habitat 67.
