Rapids Prince Crashes into Lock no. 2.
This article wich appeared in a newspaper called The Canal Express dated Summer 1998 reports an incidence wich happened on August 2nd 1931 whereby the Rapids Prince crashed into lock No. 2 in the Lachine canal causing a gush of water down to lock no. 1. Luckily there was no loss of life. The original article appeared in the August 3rd 1931 Herald. I recall when the same boat got stuck in the Lachine rapids around 1946.
