WINDOC 2
An ill starred ship; built originally in Germany in 1959 as Rhine Ore it was transferred to Canada by the Halco Shipping Company as Steelcliffe Hall in 1977. When Halco folded it was purchased by the N.M.Paterson company and renamed Windoc in 1988. All Paterson vessels had "doc" in their names. In 2001 while transiting the Welland Canal Windoc collided with Bridge 20 when the bridge operator dropped the bridge surface onto the ship shearing off the funnel. It was towed to Toronto to unload and then to Hamilton for repairs. While in Hamilton, March 2002, it was blown loose from it's moorings and across the harbour and bay coming to rest in shallow water off Burlington. For a short time it was a barge and was scrapped in Port Colborne in 2011. Arnold Mooney photo with permission
