The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
G. S. Hazard (Schooner), 4 Jun 1874

Full Text

The new three-and-after G.S. HAZARD as a perfect specimen of marine architecture, is pronounced by experts to be as near correct as can be built. She was constructed at the shipyard of Mr. FN. Jones, at Tonawanda, for himself; was commenced in June, 1873, and was not completed until May 20th of this year, the time intervening being allowed being allowed for the seasoning of her timbers, a practice if followed would, no doubt, bring about a perfection in marine craft which would tend to lessen the great loss of life and property which we are yearly called upin to chronicle. Her dimensions are 216 ft. over all, 35 ft. beam, 14 ft. hold, 864.43 tons burthen. She is commanded by Capt. Dan Ingraham, than whom a more thorough sailor does not tread a deck.
