SEGWUN : Muskoka Lakes Navigation Co, Ontario, Canada : home of RMS Segwun (an ex-paddler Nipissing II built 1887 and the oldest operational steamer in North America), the steam yacht Wanda III (of 1915) and the more modern replica steamship Wenonah II.
Parts were supplied from Glasgow and shipped to Canada 1887 for assembly at Gravenhurst and the engine of burned-out predecessor PS Nipissing of 1871 (by Davidson & Doran of Kingston) was re-used. She was out of service from 1914 until 1924 when her old broken down engine was removed and was fitted with two second hand engines and comprehensively rebuilt as a screw steamer. She served until damaged when she grounded in 1958. Served as a maritime museum for the town of Gravenhurst from 1962 until 1973 after which work started to return her to operational condition under the ownership of the Muskoka Steamship & Historical Society. This was achieved in 1981 with the help of public grants.
