13. CHEYENNE - cont'd. 7th, 1949. The report stated: "Temporary repairs were rushed on Friday and Saturday (Sept. 3 and 4), a shift working through the night, on hull plate damage on the SORELDOC, a Paterson Steamships Ltd. freighter which ran aground near Kincardine (on Lake Huron). "The repairs will enable the SORELDOC to finish the season, when she will return to the Port Weller dock for permanent repairs, Charles A. Ansell, president and general manager (of Port Weller Dry Docks), said. " Unfortunately, we have yet to turn up any further details concerning this incident, although we hope that eventually we may discover what happened at Kincardine. We extend most sincere thanks to Ron Beaupre, of Port Elgin, who located newspaper clippings concerning all three of these incidents in the scrap books of the late T. M. H. S. member Ivan S. Brookes. * * * * * LAY-UP LISTINGS -WINTER 1995-1996 As promised, we present herewith additional lay-up information which we have received since our main report appeared in the February issue.
