Maine Central Railroad Steamboat Norumbega aground on Clark's Point, Southwest Harbor. She hit the ledge after the engineer got in the habit of running from Northeast Harbor to Southwest Harbor on banked steam, and then running out of power and running into the ledge on the tide. She was later pulled off the ledge with the Steamer Moosehead.
