I am quite sure that the barge on the left is the AGAWA.

The first freighter looks like the barge Madeira, which was driven ashore near Split Rock Point, Lake Superior on November 28, 1905

Al Hart is correct it is the Agawa, theres a close up in the book Fresh Water Whales of the photos

Agawa it is - I have a photo of her launch in 1902 and have checked the ships built in Collingwood. This is the only one that fits the description.
