I was on board at the time and we managed to put a ding on the port quarter much to my bosses dismay. It was still owned by Govan at the time and repaired much later, I have another at Thunder Bay on the maiden voyage when we were lying alongside Richardsons elevatot. The same colour as the ships. All the prairie elevators were also yellow and orange.
