White Star (Steamboat), 28 Jul 1901
- Full Text
Manager Rebstock has added the stm. SUPERIOR of Cleveland to his Crystal Beach fleet, to replace the burned PURITAN, negotiations for the stm. WHITE STAR having fallen through. The SUPERIOR arrived yesterday and will be running today and for the balance of the season. The new boat is a good looking craft, staunch and commodious. She was built in 1890 to run between Superior and Duluth, so that she is practically a new boat and fit for heavy weather. During the last few years she has been on the Euclid Beach line, running between Cleveland and Euclid Beach, and it was only by offering a very large consideration to her owners that Mr. Rebstock was able to secure her.
The SUPERIOR has an indicated horsepower of 400, is 110 ft. long and 38 ft. beam, and is capable of carrying 1,200 passengers, which is exactly the capacity of the PURITAN.
Arrangements have been made with other local lake transportation companies for extra trip boats if the business shall demand their use.
