Full Text

Winter Marine Notes. Captain Thomas Guinen, of Washington Harbor, transferred to William E. Furlong of Milwaukee, the tug Liberty and an outfit of twenty-five boxes of floats and lead fishing nets for $1,500. The Liberty is wintering at the bay entrance to the ship canal. It was the intention of her owner to place her into commission in the early spring, which accounted for laying her up at the canal, but financial difficulties made it necessary for him to dispose of the outfit. In the early very days the Furlong family conducted extensive fishing operations at Washington Harbor, and owned a greater portion of Baileys Harbor also. The Liberty will be fitted out after the opening of navigation and taken to Milwaukee.
