SV notes: I call this a "fringe" shot since nobody has positively identified Mi Toi as a Russel boat. After seeing the photo of her out of the water, I would bet that she is. The photo was taken at Grand Bend in 2004. One can clearly see the hydraulic spud that goes through her hull, just behind the wheelhouse.

Mitoi September 2016 in Grand Bend, Ont. Photos by Carl Burkett. David Bannister comments: "Owned by Charlie Miller, who has a contract with Lambton Shores to dredge Grand Bend and Port Franks channels." Mike Cunningham comments: " I've seen her used for dredging. Spud down and prop wash in Grand Bend. There was a deflection plate mounted aft of the prop same as a trolling plate used to deflect the discharge current downward."
