With her scrollwork complete but the cabins and wheelhouse only in frame and her machinery yet to be installed, the steamer MONHEGAN splashes down the ways from Rockland’s Cobb-Butler Shipyard, May 30th, 1903. This 128-footer, the first steamer built here amid a string of big wooden schooners, ended her days in Providence, wrecked there by the Hurricane of 1938.
