  Not, surprisingly, a retired Great Lakes railway carferry, but Canadian National Railway's 1946 icebreaking ferry MV Abegweit, which spent most of its life transporting passengers, autos, and railway cars between Port Borden on Prince Edward Island and Cape Tormentine, on the New Brunswick mainland. Purchased by Columbia Yacht Club in 1983, a better fate than most rail ferries experienced.
