The “Hallett,” towed by the “Ward,” a tugboat now owned by George Armstrong Co. Ltd., made its final voyage yesterday evening from its former site at Seven Oaks to its new home as a tourist attraction along the La Verendrye Parkway just west of the Sorting Gap Marina. Once known as the largest and most powerful logging boat on Rainy Lake, the “Hallett” first came into service in 1941 and was used to haul logs until 1974. It was opened up as a tourist attraction at Pither’s Point Park in 1983.
