The 25-year-old Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker ALEXANDER HENRY, which presently is stationed at Thunder Bay, will be replaced by the spring of 1985. Taking her place will be a new icebreaker, the 197.8-foot ARCTIC II, which is now under construction at Vancouver. It is not yet known whether the HENRY will be relocated or sold when the new vessel is commissioned.

The steel-hulled day excursion steamer CANADIANA was built in 1910 as Hull 215 of the Buffalo Dry Dock Company, 209.7 x 45.0 x 15.8, 974 Gross and 427 Net, for service between Buffalo and the amusement park at Crystal Beach, Ontario. She operated for the Lake Erie Excursion Company, the Buffalo and Crystal Beach Transit Company, and the Crystal Beach Transit Company, until retired from that route in the 1950s. She then operated out of Toledo for Seaway Excursion Lines and Toledo Excursion Lines, and then spent more than a decade idle and then sunk at Cleveland. She is now idle at Ashtabula, but we learn that a group in Buffalo has expressed interest in returning her to that city and restoring her, much as G. A. BOECKLING has been treated at Sandusky.
