79x17x6 Built by H. Logan, Montreal and launched 30/07/24. Engine by J. D. Ward & Co., Montreal, to "Bytown". "We are informed that a beautiful little steamboat is now building…. upon the exact model of a canoe…It is perhaps the smallest ever constructed. It is intended to ply with foot passengers across the river between the usual passage roads [sic] to Laprairie and Longueuil" (Montreal "Herald"). Annesley's patent system involved no ribs and alternate layers of thin boards with oiled paper between. Wheels and engine removed so that she could be taken through locks to run Grenville-Bytown 1827-29; down to Lachine again 1830. "Additional shade deck" 1829.
