Launched as the "ALBERTA" at Desronto in 1888, this small tug was one of the only tug boats built with a centerwheel paddle.  
Lying only about 100m off shore she quietly lay upside down known to only a few, until in August 2000 Harold Vandeburg, Dan Mackay and Tom Rutledge looked up her coordinates and relocated her.
