P. J. Hanour (Canal Boat), 28 Apr 1873

Full Text

New Canal Boat. - The P.J. HANOUR. - A large number of people assembled at the City Boat Yard, corner of Green and Michigan Streets, yesterday afternoon, to witness the launch of one of the finest and most substantially constructed canal boats we have ever seen, the affair passing off in the most satisfactory manner to all concerned. The boat is named after our worthy and popular fellow citizen Mr. P.J. Hanour, and was built by Messrs. Edes, Russell, and Heath, for Mr. Morris Murtaugh, of Frankford, N.Y. by whom she will be commanded. Her dimensions are 96 feet 7 inches over all; 17 feet 8 inches beam, depth of hold 8 feet 8 inches; height of sides 9 feet 4 inches. She is of 240 tons burthen and has a carrying capacity of 8,000 bushels of wheat. Her cabin is a perfect model of neatness and is fitted up in better style than that of any similar craft we know of.
