    Swiftsure Prince

    The Swiftsure Prince is a self-loading and self-dumpting barge docked in the Fraser River. The barge has two lifting devices.

    This is the barge that floated away, hitting the New Westminster Bridge on December 26, 1975. The bridge was out of service for months.

    Late in 2013 the crames were removed from the barge, and it sits in the Fraser, a shadow of the former boat.
