I am not sure if this site is still active but I have some news. There is now a possibility that an artist has become interested in painting the Suzanne E on the sea wall in Gimli. I am very excited, pleased and looking forward to this finally happening.
On another note, I have no doubt that Alex Nelson's grandfather may have been the first captain of the Suzanne E and possibly was involved in the building of the boat, but it was my father, Noah Epstein, of Selkirk Fisheries, who built, paid for, and owned the boat until he sold his business due to ill health.
