"The year 1847 saw a flotilla of good-sized vessels launched from the yards of Quebec ship-builders. The number included 28 ships, 25 barques, and 5 brigs. ... The New Brunswick ship-builders, who were then close rivals of the Quebeckers, drew attention to themselves when Owens and Duncan, of St. John, built the ship Forest Monarch, of I542 tons. This vessel was 171 feet long, 35 feet beam, and 23·2 feet deep."
