Built for World War I service, the ship was too large to fit through the Welland Canal. This was solved by cutting the in half, and towing it across Lake Ontario.

During a snowstorm on December 3, 1918 the bow half sunk. The stern half was mated with a new bow, and renamed the Mapledawn, which later sunk in Lake Huron.

Manola Steel steamer, bow section. Built in 1890 and sank on Dec. 3, 1918 by foundering in a storm while under tow. She lies upside-down in 45-80'' of water on the rocky floor of Lake Ontario. Both sections of the hull were enroute to Montreal where they were to have been joined and used for World War I service. Eleven lives were lost.
