Theo meets his new father


After tasting the pleasures of the old capital for a few days, Theodore TOO approaches Trois-Rivières where he is expected around supper time. Funny fact, Theo symbolically met his new owner when he crossed the M.V. Blair Mckeil off Batiscan. It was indeed Blair McKeil who recently purchased Theodore TOO, he that ran for many years the business founded by his father Evans McKeil in 1956, when he started out with a hand-built wooden boat used to support the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The colourful character, an avid fan of exotic cars and charity work was President (1992-2010) and CEO (2002-2016) of McKeil Marine until the sale of a majority stake in the company to TorQuest Partners in 2016. He now sits as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Hamilton-based company named the Blair Mckeil, the ex-Gagliarda, a RI-class general cargo ship on June 7, 2019, to honour this great builder. To learn more about Theodore’s new life, go HERE.
