A photo gallery of a ride on the J.W. Cooper pilot boat in the Welland Canal, at Port Colborne, Saturday.

The tug Seahound had cut a path through the ice-filled canal as the MV Pacific Huron made its way from Lock 8 to Bridge 21. The ice was pushed in the canal during Thursday night’s storm.

The pilot boat, with Craig Workman and Eric Hughes, went to take pilot Graham Grattan off of the MV Pacific Huron as it made its way upbound on the canal just past Bridge 21.
