The steamer MANASOO owned by the Owen Sound Transportation Co., had formerly been named the MACASSA and as such had plied between Toronto and Hamilton, up until 1927 when she went to Owen Sound. She came into being at Glasgow, Scotland, where she was built in 1888. A later rebuilding in 1905 at Collingwood added 25 feet to her length, bringing it to 178 feet, and increasing her gross tonnage to 529 tons. She was licensed to carry 70 passengers on runs within 100 miles between ports, she carried no radio, and at that time was not compelled to do so. (act. of 1914)

SECTION D: REBUILDS AND ALTERATIONS
This ship was lengthened in Collingwood Shipyards Dry Dock in 1905 and
because her proportion of length to beam was now so out of line, she
became a dreadful roller. In 1928 the accommodations on the upper deck
were extended out to the full beam to make her a night boat. These
changes all contributed to her loss by capsize the first year after the
second alteration.
