Her dimensions are 124 feet keel; 26 feet beam; and 11 feet hold, measuring 350 tons. She is one of the best built vessels on the lake, and does credit not only to her builders, but to her owner, who is one of the most enterprising vessel owners on the line of the lakes. She will be ready to sail about the 15th of July. --- Cleveland Herald
