Built in Burgeo, Newfoundland, this three masted schooner was a merchant schooner in the West Indies trade when in 1920 she was purchased by the Canadian Government as a hydrographic survey vessel. While surveying the mouth of the Rupert River in James Bay in 1913, she became trapped behind a sandbank and had to be abandoned.
