Kingston Dry Dock Restored


It is 2010 and the work of restoration is almost complete. In the background the Doornekamp crew are cleaning up but in the foreground is a special visitor, retired geology Professor Lee Smith (not related). When he started describing the “tiny creatures” millions of years old in the cut limestone blocks he had the full attention of the crew.


Visible from the street this former Canadian Coast Guard ship attracts thousands of visitors each year. Someday the dock will be pumped down and we will once again see the vessel as shown here.
