Bryan Marsh comments (Oct. 18, 2017): "One of the later steel tugs used on Red Indian Lake. This came from one of the Millertown groups I follow. I'm not sure of the name of this tug. If this is the Fleetway II it may still be afloat. It was last owned by a Company called North Ventures limited and still shows up on the Canadian Vessel Registry." ... "It would have been working for Price (Newfoundland) or Abitibi-Price along with Miss Millertown. The original company would have been the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company from 1905-1965. Mill was the pulp and paper mill at Grand Falls Newfoundland, which was located many miles down the Exploits River from Red Indian Lake. https://www.facebook.com/ANDCOLTD
