boat0069The Wellandoc was built as Edward L. Strong in Trois Rivieres, Quebec in 1922 to sail the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes. In 1926 she was sold to the Canada Steamship Lines and renamed Sherbrooke. During the Second World War she sailed under that name as a registered British vessel and saw service in the Maritimes and along the French coast. After the war, in 1946, she was sold and registered in Panama as Arosa. In 1951 she was sold to an Italian firm and called Ida O. A year later she returned to Canada when she was acquired by N.M Patterson and Sons Ltd. and named the Wellandoc.
