Muskingum (Schooner), U16413, 1 Apr 1856
- Full Text
We learn from the Cleveland Herald that Messrs. Presley and Stevens have nearly ready for the water two fore and aft schooners, called the MIAMI and MUSKINGUM, and owned by Hubby, Hughes & Co. They are each of the same size, being 147 feet keel, 26 feet beam, and 11 feet hold, and about 375 tons. Capt. James Consey will sail the MIAMI, and Capt. Gilmore, late of the BLACK WARRIOR, will sail the MUSKINGUM. The MIAMI will be launched on Monday, the other about the latter part of next week. These vessels are not as full as the CUYAHOGA, built last season, but are supposed by their owners to be unequalled on the lakes for strength and sailing qualities. It is said, and is doubtless the fact, that strength has been more regarded in the building of vessels, at this point the past winter, than during the previous season.
