The Robert Gaskin was a 132 foot three masted wooden barque. She was built in Kingston, Ontario in 1863. In 1889 while involved in salvaging a train ferry a salvage pontoon broke loose and holed the Gaskin. She then sank right on top of the boat that she was attempting to salvage. Several weeks later the Robert Gaskin was raised and towed 600 feet before she sank again for the last time.
