In this presentation Captain Rick (Eric Conroy) will share his two experiences involving the S.S. Keewatin, a passenger ship that once sailed between Thunder Bay and Port McNicoll. Eric was a young waiter onboard the S.S. Keewatin in 1963-64. Much later he reunited with the ship as part of the group returning it to Port McNicoll in 2011-12.
Eric Conroy’s first and last jobs, in a long career, involved one of the ships of the Canadian Pacific Great Lakes Fleet, the S.S. Keewatin. He remains fascinated by the stories of these great ships on the Great Lakes.
