Notes:
While she was a very small vessel by Great Lakes standards, hauling the steamer (tonnage =20) seven miles to Long Lake must have been a significant project. Either the article is mistaken or the excursion business didn't pan out, as JOSIE (US#77112) ended her days cut down to a tug and used to haul sawlogs to Beck's Mill on Long Lake.
