Originally compiled By Gerry A. Ouderkirk with help from Robert B. Farrow and friends.
This list of over 900 boats was compiled primarily from the Canadian List of Shipping 1970 and later from the Canadian List of Shipping 1956. First printed on July 14, 1995. Second printing October 2004. There is no proof that all of these vessels were built by Russel Brothers or the Russel-Hipwell Engine Co., however, all of these vessels were built at Owen Sound during the period in which this company was active. As Russel Bros. and Russel-Hipwell built over 1200 vessels, this list is incomplete. Further revisions by Robert B. Farrow and Steve Briggs.
Additions and corrections are welcomed.

Cassiopeia IV – See [The] Alice M. above. Transport Canada List 2002: Built by Russel-Hipwell Engine Co., Owen Sound, Ont. Transport Canada List 2003: Owned by The Minister of Transport, Downsview, Ontario. GAO notes: The Russel built ferry CASSIOPEIA IV courtesy of the Ministry of Transportation - photo credit to Tony Roldan 2003. CASSIOPEIA IV was launched as THE ALICE M. and was still listed as such in the 1970 Canadian List of Ships. Some additional research will have to be done to find out what year the name was changed. Judging by the registration date 1963-04-18 at Toronto would likely be when it was acquired by the Ministry of Transportation. This vessel operates 32km north of Cochrane, Ontario on Highway 579. The ferry service operates approximately 9 months of the year across the Abitibi River. It is replaced by an ice bridge during winter freeze up. Average crossing for the past year consisted of 10,850 vehicles. The service is free.

GLENDYNE was sunk in 1957 while berthing the aircraft carrier HMCS MAGNIFICENT. She was girted, that is pulled over by the carrier's mooring lines. The tug's cook was trapped inside and drowned. A seaman later died in hospital. A naval inquiry blamed communication problems between the carrier and tugs. GLENDYNE was refloated a few days later and returned to serve the navy until the 1979 when she was retired and later sunk as a diver training site in Eastern Passage, Bedford Basin, Halifax Harbour. GLENDYNE was previously sunk in 1957 during a berthing accident but raised and contined to serve the navy until she retired in 1979. After retirement she was deliberately sunk as a training site for Navy Divers at Eastern Passage. Her wheelhouse was saved and installed on the wharf of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic where it provides a ticket booth for BLUENOSE II when she is in port.

Mc Niel - 13D 20628 is the number on the bow. The plaque gives several specs: 28 feet long, 8 feet wide, 7 g.t. Interestingly, the engine is quoted as 27 HP 3 cylinder Lister Dursley engine made in England, serial number 21FR3ME2. There are only 3 28' 7 g.t. Russels in the registry, Woceka II, Madeline M and Constance H. but none link up with Consolidated Bathurst. SB notes about the plaque shown on the boat page: The c. 1930 build date in Owen Sound is suspect, as the operation moved to Owen Sound only in 1937. This was obviously NOT the last logging boat built in North America if it is in fact of 1930's vintage, which does seem plausible given the battered state of the hull.

Tanac V-206 - Owen Sound Daily Sun-Times, March 22, 1945: Two More Tugs For Royal Navy. Two more vessels to be eventually commissioned as tugs of His Majesty's navy slid down the ways into the water at the plant of Russel Brothers Limited on Wednesday afternoon, ceremonies suitable to the occasion being performed by Mrs. John Klassen, 8th avenue east, and Mrs. William O'Leary, 4th avenue east. The first boat to be launched, Tanac V-208, was released into the water by Mrs. Klassen, honor thus being done her husband, who is foreman of the fitting out department in the company's plant and who has twelve years of efficient and faithful service. Mrs. O'Leary released the second vessel, Tanac V-206, her husband being given due honor on this occasion for having served the company for fifteen years. Mr. O'Leary is at present Gang Foreman in the boat shop. Both these ladies on cutting the ribbons which held the tugs on dry land thus letting them slide into the water, asked for God's blessing on the vessels and on those who serve in them, carrying out their part in the ceremonies with both efficiency and grace. These boats will add two more to the large number already built in the Owen Sound plant for the British Government for service overseas in the Royal Navy.

Tanac V-207 - Owen Sound Daily Sun-Times, March 21, 1945: New Vessels To Sail Under White Ensign. H. M. C. S. Glendyne, according to information in possession of the company, will in all probability be put into service in Canadian coastal waters where vessels of a similar type have already proved their value during the present war. The second vessel to leave the ways was Tanac V-207, the Launching ceremony in this instance being charmingly performed by Mrs. John Homenuik, honor also being thus paid by the company to her husband, who is foreman of the boat shop with eighteen years of valued and efficient service in the plant to his credit. This vessel, a sixty-footer, was built under contract for the British Government for service in the Royal Navy and be shipped overseas for delivery in the British Admiralty. Vessels of this class are used quite extensively in naval operations overseas and are also equipped with auxiliary fire-fighting apparatus whereby their services can be used in assisting to fight fires. The two launchings on Tuesday were the first since the harbor froze over at the beginning of the winter and a fairly long list of similar ceremonies will take place throughout the season which has now been formally opened.

Tanac V-208 - See Tanac V-206 above. One of a series of 60' fire-fighting tugs produced in 1945, for the Allied war effort.
