Built by its owner, Erwin LeBel, in the 1930s, this boat was about 34 ft. in length, and powered with a gas engine. In the mid 1940s it was lengthened to 40 ft. Used for fishing, and also charter trolling, the boat had a square stern and was of hard-chine design.

While moored at the Bayfield East Dock in the fall of 1948, the boat was rammed and sunk by the W.W. HILL. Following the sinking the boat was dragged ashore and dismantled.
