Oct. 20, 2010: Christian Cassidy sends these photos from Winnipeg, MB
"The boat has been there as long as I can remember on the banks of the Red River near the Louise Bridge which is near the centre of the city, behind 310 Nairn Avenue, Winnipeg.The boat area is fenced separately and notched out of the 310 Nairn property so I am not sure who owns them.
