RBF notes: "Hull 857 which I photographed at Richardson's Landing on St Joseph's Island south of the Soo, is now in the water again and has a new name. She's called Rickett's Harbour now. Still no idea on the original name but she was built by Russel Brothers in 1949. Currently owned by Sandy & Julie Gardiner (promoters of The Great Tugboat Race in Sault Ste. Marie). Gardiner's Marine out of Richards Landing on St. Josephs Island, ON. Here's a shot I took of her July 1, 2006."
