The self-unloding bulk carrier Quetico is seen in this photograph as she was approaching the entrance of the Welland Canal at Port Weller during the morning hours of April 25th, 1971.

She was built in 1961 as Whitefish Bay as a straight deck bulk carrier. In 1969 she was converted to a self unloader and renamed Quetico. In 1983 she was reconverted to a straight decker and given her original name Whitefish Bay. In 1993 she was sold for scrapping in China and she arrived there during February of that year.
