HAVE SOLD STEAMER.
The Davis Dry Dock company have just closed a contract with W.H. Argue, of Parry Sound, for the new seventy-six foot by sixteen foot passenger steamer which was launched last fall, and which is now being completed. This boat was started by this company about one year ago as stock and is built of first class white oak with pine decks and is capable of carrying one hundred and fifty passengers.
The machinery consists of one of the Davis water tube boilers, allowed a working pressure of 250 pounds a square inch and a fore and aft compound engine, with cylinders seven inch and fourteen inch by ten inch stroke, turning a propeller wheel four feet in diameter.
The hull is of a peculiar type known as tunnel bottom. It draws three feet of water forward, and four feet aft. This will enable the owner of the steamer to make landings at wharves where it would be impossible to go with a deep draught steamer. The boat will be capable of running over twelve miles per hour and will leave Kingston immediately upon opening of navigation for Georgian Bay waters, where it will be used in connection with the C.P. Railway at Parry Sound.
