"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.
