Peguis II - 1955

The Peguis II was a Government tug built for Public Works in 1955. It operated on Lake Winnipeg from 1955 to 1974 as a dredge tender. It assisted in the movement of barges loaded with sand, silt and mud from the dredging of harbours and channels.

 

Joe Simpson - 1963

The Joe Simpson was named after the famous hockey player, Bullet Joe Simpson, who was originally from Selkirk.

Built in 1963, the Joe Simpson was installed with the original diesel engines from the S.S. Keenora. As the Joe Simpson was a flat bottomed vessel and could navigate shallow waters, it took over the duties of the Chickama II as a freighter travelling from Warren's Landing to Norway House.

The Joe Simpson is the most recent addition to the Marine Museum, donated in 1994.
