Heleen C

The Heleen C pulled into Toledo on October 12 and loaded at an upriver grain dock and departed on October 14, 2016.

There is a lot of informative historical information on the movement of boats and freighters in old newspapers, but in today’s world, that is all reported on the internet. The best online resource for information on Great Lakes ship movements is www.boatnerd.com—where the news archive goes back to 1994. So, if we know an approximate date of a photo and the ship name, we can find out what it was doing at that time. Today, in 2021, the vessel is known as Sider Cartagena.
