The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Annie Vought (Schooner), U1588, 1 Sep 1868

Full Text

The ANNIE VOUGHT, which for some time past has been undergoing a refit at Clark's shipyard in this city, was towed up to the city yesterday afternoon to receive on board her anchors and cahins. Otherwise she is in complete sailing trim, and we venture to affirm what we on a former occasion stated, that no finer or stauncher built ship floats our inland seas. Her rig is that of a 3 masted schooner with finely proportioned spars and wire rigging. No heavy gear or outfit has been put on her, and beyond her knight heads, not a block is to be seen, yet all is as substantial and as nearly fitted as on board a man-of-war. Her hull has been materially strengthened by the addition of some 10 tons of bolts and other massive iron fastenings, placing her in this respect far superior to what she was before her injury being wrecked. - Det. Post.
