Bigwin Ferry Steamboat Launched in Dorset Ontario

After many years of restoration, the Bigwin Ferry steamboat was launched on Saturday in Dorset Ontario.

Here's a photo taken by D Tapscott.

And an account of the event and some history, from our Lake of Bays Historian Nancy Tapley, Bondi Resort

Thanks for the Shout Out Gord. There's pictures of the old boat, and other steamers, on our History Slideshow on the Bondi Resort Blog, too.
