Romeo Machine Shop has donated several historic marine artifacts preserved from the former Matt Shipyard to the Port of Windsor for preservation, and safekeeping.

Vince Del Duca, Romeo Machine Shop President and Steve Salmons, Windsor Port Authority President/CEO, are shown above with the 8-tonne anchor from Canada Steamship Lines’ ship, the Fort Chambly.  The ship caught fire December 6, 1988 while in Port Windsor and ultimately did not operate again.

Joseph and Vince Del Duca, from Romeo Machine Shop, load mooring bollards that will find a new home within one of Port Windsor’s Outdoor Museums, Prosperity Place and Queen’s Dock.
