The tour Boat Tom Thomson has been refloated after sinking overnight yesterday.   The vessel was moored at the docks by the Canada Summit Centre for the winter after arriving late in the fall.

The extent of the damage is not known, and its unclear whether it will be sailing in the area this summer.

The owner of the vessel did not respond to the Town’s Request for Proposal to operate the tour boat out of the town dock, which was reported on yesterday at the Town’s Operations and Protective Services committee meeting.

The owner of the vessel is responsible to clean up any environmental damage the sinking caused.
