A 103-foot paddlewheel steamboat, it sailed the Montreal-Ottawa-Kingston triangle. It was built following the ‘fiddleboat plan,’ with a recessed area in the middle of the boat to house the paddles. It first sank in Merrickville in September 1844, then again in 1854 in Mud Lake, before it was destroyed by a fire somewhere near Ottawa in 1868.
