S.S. Keewatin

My favourite picture of KEEWATIN. Here she is in Douglas Michigan, being viewed from Saugatuck across the Kalamazo River. KEEWATIN spent 45 years at this port under the care of RJ Peterson. A man of great vision! ... See MoreSee Less

She is a beauty and your group in Canada is taking excellent care of her. She should be around for many more years - as it should be.

I miss seeing her, she was a part of the scenery of the area. I was a tour guide on the Keewatin for a few summers in high school 😢

I was fortunate to tour this ship while it was docked in Douglas.

I was able to have dinner on her while in Douglas as a child. Loved it

I miss her every day but glad she is being appreciated ❤

Is this print still available to purchase?

What a wonderful picture of her!

awesome!!!! picture

Leaving or entering Douglas Saugatuck will never be the same.

Just Magnificent and She still Is thanks to you Eric the Man of Vision!!

Safe harbor from the breakers for 45 years, until she could go home. (That must be an early picture as she stil has all her lifeboats. That and all the pleasure boat slips have yet to be installed.)

I toured it in saugatuck when i was a kid.

Bravo for Peterson!

I didn't realize it was here 45 years. But I remember her being stuck in the mud by the foot of Mount Baldy the first year in Saugatuck before it's final docking in Douglas. I miss seeing her but she sails on. Some day I will see her again.

We miss her, but I'm so happy to see her sparkle in her new home. I hope to get the kids up to see her soon.

Awesome pic!! Looks like a painting!
