The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Chandler J. Wells (Bark), 1876

Full Text

The bark CHANDLER J. WELLS, which received such rough usage to spars and rigging while in Goderich harbor late last fall, and which was compelled to return to this port for winter quarters, is at Fitzgerald's ship yard where she will be supplied with a new foremast and mizzenmast with their accompanying topmasts. The WELLS will in all probability be changed into a three-and-after, which will in part change her identity. She will also be supplied with new stanchions, main rail, timberheads, bulwarks, stringers, ironwork, caps, trestletrees and other incidental repairs. Several new planks will be added on both sides to replace those which were so badly chafed. A survey was held on her last week and the damage she sustained was estimated at $1,500, or thereabouts. Before leaving this port she will be docked and thoroughly recaulked. The WELLS will be commanded the present season by Capt. Patrick Langan, of Buffalo, who is now engaged in fitting her out.
