Tarantau - Dismantling


The retired Great Lakes Self unloader Tarantau is seen in this photograph lying at the International Marine Salvage scrapyard in Port Colborne during the morning hours of September 4th, 2001. Work on dismantling the ship had resumed about a month earlier and this picture shows the absence of her unloading machinery with only the "A" frame left astern of the wheelhouse.
