These two were in use in the same area in similar services at the same time. One (arbitrarily #4964) 96x17x8 Owned by P. Barras & L. Poire, Point Levi 1853; St. Lawrence Towboat Co. 1864. Built by P. Duclos, Point Levi 1850. Engine 25x96 by Bartley & Gilbert, Montreal. Used as tug and tender. Boiler exploded 30/05/53 Quebec, 8 killed; repaired. The other (#4965) owned by Provincial Government; later Harbour Commissioners of Montreal. Dimensions and building data unknown. Engines (2) by St. Mary's Foundry, Montreal. Also seems to have been known as "Lake St. Peter". Probably destroyed by fire 27/03/61 Sorel. One of them badly damaged by ice 17/04/62 Sorel but repaired. Probably the most confusing pair on this List.

As a prototype it is subject to occasional, unexplained interruptions in service ... because we keep trying new things.
