The steamboat Daring operated in the early 1900s as part of the Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet and was later converted into a tug.
Daring was built at Tacoma in 1909 by the shipyard of Crawford and Reid for Matthew McDowell’s Seattle-Tacoma-East Pass route. Daring was 98' long and rated at 163 tons.
From 1916 to 1918, Daring was operated as a tug by Chesley Tug Co. out of Seattle, and was then sold to Pacific Great Eastern Railway, Victoria, British Columbia and renamed Clinton. On 15 January 1922 the tug Clinton was rammed and sunk by Canadian Pacific Railway ferry Princess Royal in Burrard Inlet.
