Thank you for the comment on the Alexander Henry article. A ship such as the Henry touches many lives. My information at the time I wrote the article indicated it was taken to an industrial pier north of Picton, but I doubt they would let any visitors aboard. However, I may have some good news for you; as of a few weeks ago, the ship will return to Thunder Bay as a tourist attraction.

Here is the article in the Sudbury Times- Just cut and paste into the URL box on your browser.

If you still wish to contact the place where the ship is currently docked (as far as I know, at least), here is the information.
