The articulated tug Wilf Seymour was built in 1961 by Gulfport Shipbuilding as the M. Moran for Moran Towing, designed by Joe Hack. Her original Cleveland 16-278As were replaced by EMD diesels in 1968. In 1970 she was renamed Port Arthur. This was reverted back to M. Moran in 1972. In 2000 the M. Moran was purchased by McKeil Marine of Hamilton, ON. She was brought into the Great Lakes and renamed Salvager. In 2004, she was renamed Wilf Seymour. McKeil installed a Bludworth coupler system in 2006 to make the tug an articulated pair with the barge Alouette Spirit.
The Wilf Seymour and Alouette Spirit typically carry aluminum ingots out of Sept-Iles, Quebec, and also carry grain on return trips.
