Louis R. Desmarais

Completed in 1977, the Louis R. Desmarais entered service for Canada Steamship Lines, working under that name until 2001. Her stern section was then removed from her forebody, which was then scrapped. The Desmarais stern section was then mated with a newly built forebody and renamed the CSL Laurentien.
The Louis R. Desmarais would deliver cement clinker to the Essroc Dock in Essexville, here on the Saginaw River.
