Mac Mackay Photo Collection - YFU 117 - Halifax, NS - Sept. 21, 1994.
Mac Mackay notes (2006): "YFU 117 is an exact sister of the vessel BIG STEEL shown elsewhere in the Russel site. BIG STEEL had a new wheelhouse fitted, but orginally it was just like the YFU 117...Since then she has been registered, and Transport Canada says she was built in 1955 by Russel - Hipwell."
