The Jewel of Georgian Bay: Celebrating
50 Years of Chi-Cheemaun
by Richard J. Thomas

Happy to announce that my latest book has docked! 

In 1974, the Chi-Cheemaun made its first run transporting passengers and cars from Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula to South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island. Now, 50 years later, historian Richard J. Thomas chronicles the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of this remarkable ship which remains in service to this day in his newest book: The Jewel of Georgian Bay: Celebrating 50 Years of the Chi-Cheemaun. Over 80 of the Chi-Cheemaun's builders, sailors, and travellers have also contributed their memories and photographs to make this book truly a local community project.
