-The MAPLEDAWN, originally named the [[manola|MANOLA]],​ was built in Cleveland, Ohio in 1890. The ship was thought to have been originally sold to serve in WW I. For transit through the St. Lawrence, the Manola was cut in half for transport and was to be re-assembled upon arrival at its destination. However, a storm caused the loss of it's bow section near Quinte, and was subsequently not sold. A new bow section was built and the Manola ​was re-assembled and launch in 1920, renamed the Maple Dawn+The MAPLEDAWN, originally named the [[manola|MANOLA]],​ was built in Cleveland, Ohio in 1890.

 On November 30, 1924, the MAPLEDAWN was caught in a severe snowstorm in Georgian Bay, just off Christian Island. The area the ship had wandered into, due to the low visibility, was littered with shallow shoals. Inevitably, she struck a shoal which caused the propeller and a portion of the propeller shaft to snap off, which resulted in the massive flooding of the engine room. With virtually no time to react, the engines were lost and with the ship adrift, she quickly ran aground. On November 30, 1924, the MAPLEDAWN was caught in a severe snowstorm in Georgian Bay, just off Christian Island.
