Before roads were built in the Tahoe area in the 1920s, sailing on a steamer was the only way for visitors to reach the resorts lining the south shore. The Tod Goodwin outdid all the other steamers in size and speed. It could carry 150 passengers at a time, and cruised at a "brisk" 13 ½ knots (15.5 mph).

The Tod Goodwin was the final large wooden steamer to navigate Tahoe's waters. Other boats eventually surpassed it in speed and elegance, and in the end, the steamer was abandoned on the shoreline, where it broke into pieces.
