"Ste. Claire was launched at Toledo Shipbuilding Company in 1910, and entered service later that year as part of the fleet operated by the Detroit & Windsor Ferry Company. For 81 years, this vessel carried passengers to Bois Blanc (Bob-Lo) Island, a record of service on a single run unequalled in U.S. maritime history." However, the latter part of the claim is false: it is undermined by the fact that the Columbia served on the same run for a slightly longer time, which the NRHP registration document makes clear. After the island park closed in 1991, she fell into disrepair. In 2003 she was towed to Toledo, Ohio, where she has been undergoing restoration.
A partial restoration of both ships, Columbia and Ste. Clair, was made for a 2014 appearance in feature film Transformers 4.
