Description: This propeller was built in 1922 by Great Lake engineering Works, River Rouge, Michigan. She was owned by Wilson Transport Company until 1967, when she was sold to Ingalls Shipbuilding Corporation. She was then sold to Litton Systems in 1968, Kinsman Marine Transit Company in 1972, and S&E Shipping Corporation in 1974. In 1955, she became "Ben Moreell," and in 1977, she became "Alastair Guthrie." She had a bow thruster installed by Fraser-Nelson Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company, Superior, Wisconsin, winter of 1963-64. As "Ben Moreell," she collided with and sank carferry "Ashtabula" in Ashtabula, Ohio, harbor on September 18, 1958. As "Alastair Guthrie," she began taking on water in engine room while loading cargo at International Multiloads elevator, Duluth, around April 17, 1979. The cause was discovered to be a valve in the cooling system (sea chest) that had been left open. On September 22, 1983, she suffered a fire in her #4 compartment while carrying barley.
