Starting life as the Manola, her bow half sunk in Lake Ontario. A new bow half was built for the stern, and renamed the Mapledawn.

On Nov. 30. 1924 a winter storm gale stranded the Mapledawn, which was bound for Port McNichol with a cargo of barley on Christian Island. Two weeks of salvage recovered 75,000 bushels of barley, but the ship was declared a total loss. Some machinery was removed then but more of this wreck was raised for metal salvage to aid the World War II effort in 1942.
