History

120x16x7 Owned by G. M. Kinghorn, Kingston. Built by C. Jenkins, Kingston Marine Railway 1858. Engine by Kingston Foundry. Built as Kingston-Cape Vincent ferry through Wolfe Island canal to 1864 when it became too shallow to be used. Vessel had to have very shallow draft but had also to cope with strong beam winds; therefore had retractable centreboard. Wolfe Island ferry and occasional towboat later. Frozen in 08/11/63 near Wolfe Island, stayed until cut free 08/04/64. Last used 1870; sank at dock 28/07/71 while being scrapped.
