  1. What beautiful pictures Sean, as always I love looking at your web site.

    Thanks for documenting the 5-year inspection of this grand, old Lady (no disrespect meant) for future generations. The initial reports about Trillium’s condition are favourable, even after 107 years plying the waters of Toronto Harbour/Bay. Now if we could just get someone to authorize some surface paint & wood trim restoration beginning with changing 102 years to 107 years stenciled on the wheelhouses would be an obvious start. MF

      Thanks Mike. I’d take a new deck on Inglis to start, it’s wetter inside the ferry than outside when it rains!
