boat0071The S.S. Yankcanuck was the last of the composite hull vessels (iron above the water-line, oak below for easy replacement in case of damage) still working the Great Lake area in the 1950s. She was owned by Yankcanuck Transportation Co. Ltd., of Sault Ste. Marie, run by a Canadian skipper and his American wife, which gave rise to the name of the vessel. In 1954 she wintered in Cornwall’s drydocks where her planking and frame were renewed.
