On 14 August 1936, Eubee was traveling from Bordeaux, France, to Buenos Aires, Argentina, with 1,478 passengers on board in fog when she was rammed by the British steamer SS Corinaldo near Santa Catarina Island in the Atlantic Ocean 90 nautical miles (170 km) north of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. The collision left Eubee with her engine room flooded,[1] and five stokers killed. Corinaldo took off her passengers. Eubee was taken in tow by the Brazilian tugboat Antonio Azambuja and the Uruguayan tugboat Powerful,[2] but foundered on 16 August 1936. Her crew were rescued by Antonio Azambuja.[3]
