Hallet Moving Today
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Another final voyage for the tugboat Hallet. Fort Frances Community Services Manager George Bell says the local landmark will be moved from its current location at Pither's Point Park today. "They will be lifting the Hallet out and putting on a flatbed," says Bell, "driving it over to the Armstrong dock at Seven Oaks and then lifting it with cranes again back into the water. It will be towed to the existing site with Armstrong's tugboat."
Cranes will then move the boat into its final resting spot near the Sorting Gap Marina.
The exact time of the move is still to be determined.
