per Eric Antonelli, 4/27/16:

If anyone is interested after a successful career of predicted log races under her Captain H.D. Fowler El Phileen blew up (Chrysler gas marine engine) and sank, in July of 1960, in Bull Harbor, Hope Island, at the north tip of Vancouver Island. No serious injuries among the six passengers aboard. The family retains treasured memories and relics.
