Freight-Passenger-Commercial Fishing Vessels of Lake Nipigon

As remembered by Adolph King, Rossport, Ontario, 1974

From the Nipigon Museum Archives:

The Fishing tug named "Viking" also built in Rossport in 1902, had a length of 50 feet, a fore and aft compound engine and a scotch boiler.

It was shipped to Lake Nipigon in 1917 and was out of service in 1928.

The machinery went to scrap dealers.
