Finlay Navigation I

In 1985, John Harding responded to changing customer needs and embarked on an innovative renovation and fabrication project to widen and self-propel two steel barges.  The barges were cut apart and pre-fabricated components were lifted and welded into position.  Upon launching, the ferry was named the "FN #1" and marked a new level of economical marine service on Williston Lake, BC.

The picture to the left shows the FN #1 with a full load of logging trucks.
