boat0063The Transriver was built in Bordeaux, France in 1929, as the coastal vessel Sotteville. Sold the next year to another French firm she became the Greeur.

Ogilvie Flour Company later purchased the boat along with others to transport grain. Operating under Ogilvie’s firm Tree Line Ltd., the ship was renamed the Maplebay. She was finally taken over and refitted for tanker duty by Canadian Coastwise Carriers Ltd. of New Brunswick.
