PADDLE STEAMER: Sicamous in Canada

Plans have been put forward for a lakeside development which will help to fund the upkeep of the preserved Canadian sternwheel paddle steamer Sicamous. Developer John Vassilaki, together with the SS Sicamous Society, proposes building a marine park, marina and museum centre alongside the paddler at Penticton on Okanagan Lake and sharing the operating profits between the Society and the city. Sicamous was built for Canadian Pacific Railway in 1914 by Western Dry Dock at Port Arthur, Ontario, and was shipped in parts to Okanagan Landing for assembly. She operated passenger and cargo services around the 84-mile-long lake, transporting trappers, miners and forestry workers from lake community to lake community.
