Yes just the one, taken in 88 while on a tour of the lock system in Sault Ste Marie.
Believe it was/is used for storage at the Algoma Steel.

The Avery was sunk to become the face of the Algoma Steel Export Dock in Sault.
Ste.Marie,where in a former life I was responsible for many thousands of tons of steel products destined for off-shore.A substantial amount of the vessel is still visible,and unlike so many others did not become razor blades.....Doug
