Several issues ago, we told of plans by the Toronto Historical Board to preserve the steam tug NED HANLAN if the necessary funds could be raised. It has now been announced that, thanks to Mr. David Stewart of the MacDonald Tobacco Co., sufficient funds have been accumulated and the vessel will be lifted from the murky water of the Rees Street slip this fall. She will be moved by trailer to a spot just to the west of the Marine Museum and there will be placed on a special cradle, with filling operations to be completed after the ship is in place. Eventually, and hopefully by next spring, she will be restored to operating condition for viewing by the local citizenry.

It appears that T.M.H.S. may be given an opportunity to assist in the job of preserving this fine tug and we trust that, if requested, we will have the full support of all of our local members.
