Joe Simpson - 1963
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.
