The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
American Eagle (Schooner), 4 Oct 1845

Full Text

Capt. Dibble has been building a new vessel at this place, this season, which is forwarded so much toward completion as to be ready to launch. She will be about 180 tons burthen, and the substantial manner in which she has been built, and her general appearance, indicate that she will be one of the best vessels on the lakes. She is to be commanded by Capt. Sackett, who has the reputation of being one of the best seamen on the lake. Owned, we believe, mostly by Capt. Dibble, Mr. S.E. Bell, and Capt. Sackett. - Sandusky Mirror.

      THE "AMERICAN EAGLE" is the name of the new vessel built by Capt. Daniel Dibble, of this city, which was launched on Saturday last, in fine style, without accident of any kind that we have heard of. It is a beautiful model, and is probably one of the strongest vessels of her class on the lakes. She cost between 9 and $10,000. Her Custon House measurement is 185 tons, and is what is called a low-rigged schooner.
      Dimensions - Length on deck, 95 ft.; beam 24 ft.; hold, 9 ft. 1 inch.
      Owners - Messrs. Daniel Dibble, Harrison P. Sackett, Wakeman Dibble and Stuart E. Bell.
Master - Harrison P. Sackett. - Sandusky Clarion.
