Quebecois retains steam engine

The steam powered Quebecois will be here today for the 5th time this season and the 2nd trip this month. The boat will be discharging a cargo of cement. Built in 1966 in Montreal, it is one of the few vessels sailing the Great Lakes for any length of time that has kept the same name it had when launched. Photo taken June 25, 2002.
