The Last Big Boat on Slocan Lake

The New West tugboat that has served Slocan Lake as a log boom hauler is being pulled out of the lake and put to service somewhere on the west coast. This boat replaced the paddlewheeler S.S. Roseberry as the biggest boat on the lake. The tugboat used to collect logs from the sorting yard at Roseberry and over a long day pull them to the mill at Slocan City. Things are getting pretty quiet at the mill. It will be interesting to see what happens to Slocan if the mill were to be closed down.
