CGCS Alexander Henry

CCGS Alexander Henry is a former Canadian Coast Guard Light icebreaker and Buoy tender that served its entire career in the Great Lakes. Port Arthur Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., Port Arthur, built the ship. She was launched in 1958 and commissioned in 1959 into the Department of Transport's Marine Service as CGS Alexander Henry using the prefix "Canadian Government Ship," named after Alexander Henry, an 18th-century British explorer and fur trader. Retired from service in 1984 after CCGS Samuel Risley entered service, she is now a museum ship preserved at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes in Kingston, Ontario and operated as a bed and breakfast during the summer months.

WHAM Radio 1180 Boat

WHAM Radio 1180 is in Rochester, New York. I think this was taken during the mid 1980s in The Gan. (That's Gananoque for those of you not familiar with the way we speak in eastern Ontario.) I could be wrong about the location but it's still a nice boat and so are the others in the picture.
