Abstract (Document Summary)

The Hiawatha, built in 1895 and considered one of the world's oldest vessels still in daily service, was apparently boarded and sunk by vandals at the yacht club's dock on Queens Quay, police said. The boat took club members and guests between the city and Toronto Island.

The Hiawatha, which can carry 100, was launched on its maiden voyage across Toronto Harbour to the clubhouse on July 9, 1895, said Karen Black, manager of museums and heritage services for the City of Toronto culture division.
