Tusker - Canada

The tug Tusker is seen in this photograph as she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the evening hours of June 13th, 1987. Her stern tow cable was secured to the stern of the former Ford Motor Company bulk carrier John Dykstra and Benson Ford. The ship had been sold for scrapping overseas and was heading out of the Great Lakes at this point.
