SS Klondike was the name of two sternwheelers, the second now a national historic site located in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Both ran freight between Whitehorse and Dawson City along the Yukon River from 1929-1936 and 1937-1950, respectively.

Klondike I was built in 1929 and had the distinction of having 50% more capacity than a regular sternwheeler, while still having the shallow draft and meeting the size requirements in order to travel down the Yukon River. Klondike Ihad a cargo capacity of 270 metric tonnes without having to push a barge.

I betcha Michelle doesn't know about this business. I didn't even know my brother had been to whitehorse!
