From Skip Gillham ( STELLA DESGAGNES was idle at Montreal in 1993 and sold late in the year to Beam Shipping. She was registered in Panama as BEAM BEGINNER and sailed December 30, 1993, for new service in the south. The voyage was interrupted by apparent rudder damage and the trip ended at Becancour, Quebec on January 15. The hull was resold and towed back through the Seaway to Hamilton in July 1995 where she was dry-docked and given a refit.

She departed again under tow, as WOLF RIVER on August 27, 1997, and headed through the familiar waters of the Welland Canal enroute to Thunder Bay, Ontario. WOLF RIVER resumed service in June 1998 carrying pulpwood from Thunder Bay to Duluth but has seen only limited work in this new role and has mainly been idle.

If it's any help... according to Fred Miller ... it is in long term lay-up in Thunder Bay Ont. but status might have changed since the comment was a while back.
