Transformers 4 - Movie Scenes Filmed on Michigan's Historic S.S. Columbia and S.S. Ste Clair Boats

We've reported that some Transformers 4 filming would be taking place on boats in the Michigan area. We have conformation that this work has been completed on both the S.S. Columbia and her sister the S.S. Ste Clair ships docked on the River Rouge. The production on the Boblo boats was reported by Columbia's ship keeper, Sam Buchanan, as "a prominent role" in the film with a second smoke stack added to the St. Clair, and "minor" for the Columbia. Shooting continues in downtown Detroit on Monday where the "Hong Kong" scenes are said to take place.

"When the movie folks are in town, they’re always looking for unique place to shoot so these boats came into play," Buchanan said. "They’re moving right along. They’ve been shooting primarily at night. I don’t know how much more is going to be going on there but they’re not nearly finished."
"There were a lot of helicopters flying around," city clerk Sue Joseph said.
"It was unique looking because both Boblo boats only had one smoke stack. They added a second one for some sort of explosion in the movie," Buchanan said. "It won’t harm the boat any. The boats won’t be harmed in any way, but they’re making their big Hollywood debute."
