Ada Harrison and Norman Harrison in the forest service boat Alice, after 1917, Arrow Park. Notes from Milt Parent: 'Bill Pratt bought this boat from Stones, 1917. Harrison probably ran it as a forestry boat. Freda Waterfield says Don Waterfield bought it from Pratt and later put a canopy over it and put a Ford V8 engine in it. Dr. Tyerman got the motor out of it in exchange for taking Nigel Waterfield's tonsils out. $100. Don picked up his 2 sisters & mother at Arrowhead with this boat. It took them 2 days to get to Nakusp. Bad storm. They had been to England.'
