We have strong bonds with Govan in Glasgow, Scotland where Keewatin was built by Fairfield Shipyards on the river Clyde; Saugatuck in Michigan, USA where she was saved and retired by Tower Marine on Kalamazoo Lake; and, of course, Port McNicoll, Ontario, Canada where she was operated by CP Ships and has taken on a new life in the hands of Friends of Keewatin.
And we have bonds with Montreal, Quebec, the headquarters of the Canadian Pacific Railway and Keewatin’s port of registration; Levis, Quebec where Keewatin was separated for transit, and Buffalo, New York where she was reassembled.
