The Effie Mae was launched in 1968.  Around 1980, the Effie Mae became the first live-aboard dive charter boat in the Kingston area before changing hands in 1987 to Ted and Donna Walker who started a diving charter around Kingston.  In the spring of 1993, they ran her for the last time to the Metal Craft Dry dock to be made ready for sinking. On Sunday October 17, 1993, twenty-five years from the date of her christening, the Effie Mae was put to rest beside one of the historic shipwrecks she had visited so many times before. To-day, sitting upright beside the wreck of the schooner barge Aloha, she is an often-visited dive site.
