Jordan Harbour abandoned ship

The two-masted replica of "La Grande Hermine", or its stupider name "The Big Weasel" sits low in the water, still rusting within the break-wall of Jordan Harbour. The ship became a historic replica of one of French Explorer Jacques Cartier after it was used as a ferry, cargo ship and floating restaurant until it was brought to the harbour in 1997.

Resting on the floor of Lake Ontario just metres from the beach with masts poking up over the trees and visible from the nearby QEW Highway between Hamilton and St Catherines. The ship has been through a lot, including a fire, and now is just a brief tourist stop for curious travelers.
