Dispatch (Tug), 2 Nov 1867


Description
Full Text

The tug DISPATCH, which unfortunately during the early part of the season took fire and burned to the water's edge at Sandusky, has undergone a thorough reconstruction at Clark's drydock and is once more in commission. Only that the name is still assumed, it might be truely said that she has become an entire new craft. Her timbers are much larger than formerly, and the entire hull is now strong and substantial mass of wood and iron. Her machinery has been reconstructed and put in excellent order, with new boilers. For towing through the lakes her improvements has been considerably enlarged by the addition of an upper deck, and she has ample room for fuel. Her paint is snow white, and her appearance throughout is imposing as any of those in the like service.
