220922-220-EditThe Jean Parisien was built in 1977 and has been a regular visitor to the Twin Ports for many years. She did not come out from winter layup after the 2003 season, and it was thought she would either be scrapped or rebuilt.
On August 24th, 2004, Canada Steamship Lines announced the boat would receive a new hull, replacing everything in front of the stern mounted super structure that holds the engine room, living quarters and pilot house. In the spring of 2005, the `new’ vessel was renamed the CSL Assiniboine.  The name comes from the Assiniboine River running through the grain producing provinces of Western Canada.
