Didn't this tug sink at the Canadian Soo back in the mid-1980s?

M guess would be 1994 or 1995. Purvis acquired the tug in 1994 but I know its D398 Caterpillar Diesel was put into Purvis's Adanac in 1996. It sat at the Purvis yard for years afterwards and was pretty much dismantled by 2010 or so. It started life as GLTCo's Fairport in 1914 and had an eventful life.

I'm not much into tugs but I was talking to a friend that recently acquired a photograph of the tug Rod McLean taken at what he believes is the Canadian Soo with a notation on the back saying tug retired later that year. Unfortunately there is no date. He is wondering what year that would have been? My acquaintance is not very computer literate so I told I would see if anyone could help out.

Thanks for any replies.
