(Ted Eldred of Owen Sound was part of a group of 8 men Russel Brothers sent to Moosonee, ON to reassemble and launch the two barges HBC 300 and HBC 150, and tug Rupert River in the spring of 1962. The Selkirk MB job took about 4 weeks, while Moosonee took about 6. Once the barges and boats were rebuilt, inspectors would check the welds with X-rays to ensure quality. The the hulls were cut loose to slide down the ways on "butter boards" or greased hardwood timbers, which were often stolen by the locals as wood was so scarce up north.)
