Perhaps we should pass along a word of warning. The above list is intended as a check list only, and dates of official registry closure are not necessarily those of sale or of scrapping. In the case of new vessels, we include dimensions to bring the records up to date, but these figures do not correspond with the "registered dimensions" appearing in both Lloyd's and the A.B.S. "Record," and used in our fleet lists.

We have included only ships appearing regularly on the lakes or the Upper St. Lawrence as well as particularly common Government or ocean vessels. We hope to make this listing a regular feature, and our thanks for the information go to George Ayoub.
