History

127x20x4 Owners unknown. Engine 14x60 by Hinckley & Egery, Bangor Maine (to "Andover"). Launched 13/04/61. "The only promenade deck was a walk of three feet on each side of the boat two feet above the water. From this deck you ascend by three or four steps towards the bow an upper deck [sic] which was covered but open at the sides and extended to within 20 feet of the bow. From this upper deck you walked into a saloon about 20 feet long. Beyond was a small saloon, 10 or 12 feet square, with a sofa and three or four chairs. Beyond this again was a space which offered seats for perhaps a dozen people. Altogether the accommodation was of the humblest character." (Montreal "Gazette" 1866.)
