Scope and content

Comprises one watercolour of the G.B. Patee II which was a steam tug which plied the Ottawa River. In May 1904, it was constructed at Quyon, Quebec, from pre-fabricated plates, angles, and bags of rivets and bolts which arrived from Scotland. For over forty years, it towed booms of logs from Chats Falls to the Deschenes Rapids. A decade later, it was acquired by Thomas Fuller who converted it to the family brigantine. In recent years, it was acquired by the Britannia Yacht Club and is now used to train young people to sail.
