History

133x25x15 Owned by Dominion Government. Built by E. W. Sewell, Lévis and launched 06/09/76. Engines (2) 30-60x32 by Carrier Laîné, Sorel. Had 22 staterooms when built. New ladies' cabin, more staterooms replaced open berths 1877. Designed as icebreaking Northumberland Strait ferry, to draw 19' at stern while keel would be exposed at bow. Owing to design error, drew two feet more water than planned and proved to be a poor icebreaker. (Said to be better icebreaker when going astern) Last used 1887. Note: Official number 71193 re-used in error for "Carleton".
