That's a great help Mac, I had only seen the boat there and not known anything about it.

Thanks a lot,

Jameson Point was trowing the old ferry Trois-Rivieres (renamed Richelieu) from Quebec to the US when she had a breakdown off Gaspe in November 2006. She limped in to Port Hawskbury November 28, 2006. They were bound for Rockland, Maine for bunkers, then the ferry was to go on to Haiti, possibly with the same tug.
Jerry Newberry was built as Foundation Victor in 1956 [nb], becoming Point Victor in 1973 for Eastern Canada Towing. She was built for service in Sept Iles and Baie Comeau in summer and Halifax in winter. She was sold to C.A.PItts i n1977 and renamed Kay Cole. She then passed to McKeil Work Boats in 1995 and was renamed Jerry Newberry. They sold her to McNally Construction in 2007.

Thank you Daniel,
Recently some work was done to the bow of Jerry Newberry, but Jameson point seems to be almost out of commission, as I haven't seen it running or moving any time I was at the wharf.

Best Wishes,

Newberry was built at Daviship, back in 1954, if I remember well...
She was the Foundation Victor and has been working in Halifax for a very long time.
