Description
Full Text

The schr. LUTHUR WRIGHT, built at Huron, Ohio in 1846 by Capt. Wm. Dana and John Stevens, was the first three-and-aft vessel on the lakes. She continued that rig up to the time of her loss, some 7 years afterwards at Port Colborne. A vessel called the OWANONGHA was thus fitted out, but not working satisfactorily she was converted into a brig. Three-and-afters are now the most numerous class of vessel on the lakes. The WRIGHT was modeled by E. Bates, and Fred Ketchum, was the master builder. She was 195 tons burden.
